Special Issue on Major Earthquake Hazards and Disaster Reduction

Earthquake disasters not only cause direct loss of life and property, they can also cause a series of secondary natural disasters and social disasters. There are many different types of active structures with destructive seismic capability in mainland China and its adjacent areas, which means they face an extremely high risk of earthquake disaster. The study of the source physical process, deep structure and surface process of seismogenic structure in major earthquakes helps us understand their mechanism and law, and provides a theoretical basis for scientific prevention of earthquake disasters. The purpose of this special issue is to bring together the latest research on major earthquake disasters in recent years.

Topics Covered:

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Reviews on earthquake hazards research
  • Detailed reports of major earthquake disasters
  • Formation and evolution of major earthquake disasters
  • Active tectonics and seismic surface processes
  • The source physical process and deep structure of major earthquakes
  • Research on the prevention and risk of major earthquake disasters
  • Emergency response to and rescue from major earthquake disasters

Important Deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 30 September 2021

Submission Instructions:

Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All articles should be submitted online; please select VSI: Major Earthquake Hazards and Disaster Reduction on submission.
