By Renata Dmowska (Eds.)

The significantly acclaimed serialized overview magazine for over 50 years, Advances in Geophysics is a hugely revered e-book within the box of geophysics. considering the fact that 1952, every one quantity has been eagerly awaited, usually consulted, and praised by way of researchers and reviewers alike. Now in its 51st quantity, it comprises a lot fabric nonetheless proper today--truly a necessary e-book for researchers in all fields of geophysics.

The Emission-Line Universe

This booklet offers lectures by means of prestigious researchers and skilled observers from the eighteenth iciness college of the Canary Islands Astrophysics Institute (IAC), dedicated to emission traces and the astrophysical gadgets that produce them. It exhibits how emission strains in numerous wavelengths, from ultraviolet to close infrared, offers crucial details on realizing the formation and evolution of astrophysical items, from the 1st stars to things in our Galaxy.

Astronomy and History Selected Essays

The gathering of papers assembled the following on numerous issues in historical and medieval astronomy used to be initially urged through Noel Swerdlow of the collage of Chicago. He was once additionally instrumental in creating a choice* which might, in most cases, be at the related point as my publication the precise Sciences in Antiquity.

The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes

This quantity has develop into one of many smooth classics of relativity conception. whilst it was once written in 1983 there has been little actual proof for the lifestyles of black holes. fresh discoveries have basically served to underscore the dependent thought constructed right here, and the ebook is still one of many clearest statements of the proper arithmetic.

Continued monitoring of induced seismicity over the following decades will allow determining whether these differences are statistically significant. Arguably, the availability of high-quality data is the single most important requirement for evaluating the correlation between hydrocarbon production and seismicity. As a reflection of this necessity, the industry increasingly devotes resources to improving the instrumentation of oil fields and the data analysis. One prominent example is Valhall field which is equipped with a dense onshore and offshore seismic array (see Section 3).

Seismicity caused by other human activities such as mining. However, there are two examples of destructive earthquake sequences which occurred in the immediate vicinity of oil fields and which were not related to a previously known fault. These have given rise to speculations about the possibility that hydrocarbon production might cause destructive earthquakes. Apart from their size, a common feature of these earthquake sequences is that they occurred at midcrustal depths (around 10 km). Thus, the question about a possible connection to hydrocarbon production is closely related to the question of how induced stress perturbations could propagate to these depths.
