Principles of seismology

  • Introduction: earthquake types, elastic rebound theory, history of seismology
  • Earthquakes measurements and monitoring: seismic waves (body and surface waves), seismometer, accelerometer, seismograph, seismic station, seismogram, earthquake strength, magnitude, intensity, European Macroseismic Scale, earthquake effects, earthquake location
  • Earthquakes in space and time: spatial distribution of earthquakes, seismicity and plate tectonics, temporal distribution of earthquakes, frequency-magnitude logarithmic relation, frequency distribution of aftershocks
  • Earthquakes and tectonics: seismotectonics, rupture length, fault slip, focal mechanisms – determination and meaning
  • Earthquake hazard assessment: earthquake hazard map, probabilistic seismic hazard assessment, seismic geological site effect (reference point method, spectral ratio method, microtremors method, numerical modelling), seismic microzonation, soil classification (Eurocode 8), earthquake engineering
  • Earthquakes and Earth’s internal structure: analyses of teleseisms, seismic tomography, surface waves dispersion analysis, radial models of the Earth’s interior, seismic velocities in the Earth’s interior, main seismic discontinuities
  • Earthquakes in Slovenia: seismicity maps, plate tectonics and Slovenia territory, larger earthquakes in Slovenia, seismological monitoring in Slovenia, Slovenian seismological network, earthquake hazard in Slovenia, design ground acceleration map, intensity map
