Seismicity of Central America : a descriptive catalogue, 1898-1995 by N. N Ambraseys( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the outcome of a careful and detailed study of earthquakes in Central America. It combines information from felt effects and instrumental recordings to reassess the location and size of events since the beginning of the instrumental era. Early sections describe the techniques used, with particular emphasis on the determination of earthquake magnitude. The largest section comprises detailed descriptions of more than 700 of the more significant earthquakes, many accompanied by maps of the felt effects. The main catalogue gives details of the location and size of more than 1800 events, with references to associated phenomena such as surface faulting, volcanism and tsunami generation."--Jacket
The seismicity of Egypt, Arabia, and the Red Sea : a historical review by N. N Ambraseys( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A careful and intensive study of historical sources and a review of the instrumental data of this century have led to this detailed catalogue of earthquakes. Egypt, Arabia, the Red Sea region and the surrounding areas of Libya, Sudan and Ethiopia are studied from the earliest times to the present day. Each earthquake is described as fully as possible from the available data, and is analysed in a geographical and historical context. The completeness of the earthquake catalogue over time is analysed and the range of sources and problems associated with the scrutiny of historical sources is discussed. The information is then placed in a geophysical framework

Earthquakes in the Mediterranean and Middle East : a multidisciplinary study of seismicity up to 1900 by N. N Ambraseys( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book uses a multidisciplinary approach to examine historical evidence from the last 2000 years to analyse earthquakes in the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East." "Early chapters review techniques of historical seismology, while the main body of the book comprises a catalogue of more than 4000 earthquakes identified from historical sources. Each event is supported by textual evidence extracted from primary sources and translated into English. Covering southern Rumania, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Iraq, the book documents past seismic events, places them in a broad tectonic framework, and provides essential information for those attempting to prepare for, and mitigate the effects of, future earthquakes and tsunamis in these countries." "This volume is an indispensable reference for researchers studying the seismic history of the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, including archaeologists, historians, earth scientists, engineers and earthquake hazard analysts."--Jacket
