Optical Interferometry (2017)
Rijeka, Croatia : InTech
Keywords: optics ; lasers ; interferometry
Notes: Optical methods of measurements are the most sensitive techniques of noncontact investigations, and at the same time, they are fast as well as accurate which increases reproducibility of observed results. In recent years, the importance of optical interferometry methods for research has dramatically increased, and applications range from precise surface testing to finding extrasolar planets. This book covers various aspects of optical interferometry including descriptions of novel apparatuses and methods, application interferometry for studying biological objects, surface qualities, materials characterization, and optical testing. The book includes a series of chapters in which experts share recent progress in interferometry through original research and literature reviews.

Earthquakes : Tectonics, Hazard and Risk Mitigation (2017)
Rijeka, Croatia : InTech
Keywords: earthquake ; seismology ; tectonics ; natural hazards ; risk analysis
Notes: This book is devoted to diverse aspects of earthquake researches, especially to new achievements in seismicity that involves geosciences, assessment, and mitigation. Chapters contain advanced materials of detailed engineering investigations, which can help more clearly appreciate, predict, and manage different earthquake processes. Different research themes for diverse areas in the world are developed here, highlighting new methods of studies that lead to new results and models, which could be helpful for the earthquake risk. The presented and developed themes mainly concern wave's characterization and decomposition, recent seismic activity, assessment-mitigation, and engineering techniques. The book provides the state of the art on recent progress in earthquake engineering and management. The obtained results show a scientific progress that has an international scope and, consequently, should open perspectives to other still unresolved interesting aspects. | Contents: Chapter 1 Earthquake Instrumentation by Jae Cheon Jung --- Chapter 2 Application of Local Wave Decomposition in Seismic Signal Processing by Ya-juan Xue, Jun-xing Cao, Gu-lan Zhang, Hao-kun Du, Zhan Wen, Xiao-hui Zeng and Feng Zou --- Chapter 3 3D Seismic Velocity Structure Around Plate Boundaries and Active Fault Zones by Mohamed K.
