By Wing-huen Ip

"Advances in Geosciences" is the results of a concerted attempt in bringing the newest effects and making plans actions with regards to earth and house technological know-how in Asia and the foreign area. the quantity editors are all top scientists of their learn fields overlaying 5 sections: good Earth (SE), sunlight Terrestrial (ST), Planetary technological know-how (PS), Hydrological technology (HS), and Oceans and Atmospheres (OA). the most goal is to spotlight the clinical matters necessary to the research of earthquakes, tsunamis, weather switch, drought, flood, typhoons, house weathers, and planetary exploration.

Example text

Wu the western and eastern boundaries of the earthquake rupture zone. The moving window for the selection of events to evaluate the m value has a unit of 11 quadrangles, or equivalently a length of about 500 km and moves a step of one quadrangle, or equivalently 40 km, each time. Hence, the values of m are evaluated for different moving windows, and the value m obtained for each moving window is assigned to its central quadrangle. From Fig. 3, it can be observed that, like Fig. 6 earthquake 2 years before.
