International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology
To celebrate the 100 Anniversary of the International Association of Seismology (now International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior, IASPEI), the International HandbookExpand
Completeness of the Mainland China Earthquake Catalog and Implications for the Setup of the China Earthquake Forecast Testing Center
We describe the setup of testing regions for the China Earthquake Forecast Testing Center and provide preliminary forecast results in the scope of the Collaboratory for the Study of EarthquakeExpand
Developing a Prototype Earthquake Early Warning System in the Beijing Capital Region
The Beijing capital region (36°N–42°N, 113.5°E–120°E) is located in northern China and includes Beijing City, Tianjin City, and Hebei Province. This region of critical economic and culturalExpand
Difference between real-life escape panic and mimic exercises in simulated situation with implications to the statistical physics models of emergency evacuation: The 2008 Wenchuan earthquake
Analyzing some of the video recordings of the May 12, 2008, Wenchuan magnitude 8.0 earthquake, it is observed that the relation between the arrival time and the order of the person arriving shows a nonlinear variation, which is different from simulated exercises in which this relation appears linear.

Civilian monitoring video records for earthquake intensity: a potentially unbiased online information source of macro-seismology
It is argued that with proper guidance for providing the necessary information of the location and time when sharing these data online, civilian monitoring videos are potentially more and more useful in the citizen-powered macro-seismology. Expand
Benioff Strain Release Before Earthquakes in China: Accelerating or Not?
We systematically analyzed the Benioff strain release before 65 earthquakes with MS over 6.0 in China from 1978 to 2003 to investigate the generality of the widely discussed accelerating momentExpand
Multi-scale seismic hazard and risk in the China mainland with implication for the preparedness, mitigation, and management of earthquake disasters: An overview
Abstract Earthquake hazard and risk in the China mainland exhibit multi-scale characteristics. Facing the complex challenge, several research and application projects have been undertaken sinceExpand
Preliminary Report on the 3 August 2014, Mw 6.2/Ms 6.5 Ludian, Yunnan–Sichuan Border, Southwest China, Earthquake
Online Material: Tectonic map, figures of slip distributions, strong‐motion accelerograms, field photos of earthquake damage, station locations, and distribution of focal mechanisms. The M w 6.2/ MExpand
The effect of distribution of stations upon location error: Statistical tests based on the double-difference earthquake location algorithm and the bootstrap method
In this letter, we investigate the effect of station distribution (including the number and azimuthal gap of stations) upon location error based on the field data observed at Northern CaliforniaExpand
Definition of Seismic Moment at a Discontinuity Interface
When considering a seismic source operating along a discontinuity interface, seismic moment has to be redefined considering the jump of rigidity. The traditional definition of seismic moment may leadExpand
