[Purpose] This paper studies the characteristics of the seedling regeneration, stand structures, undergrowth biomasses, litter amounts and soil water contents of planted forests of Pinus tabuliformis...

The paleoearthquakes of the Langshan Piedmont fault, North China since late Pleistocene

June 2021
Changbin Sun | Dewen Li | Linlin Li

The Langshan Piedmont fault (LPF) is an active Holocene normal fault that borders Langshan Mountain and the Hetao Graben in the northwest of Ordos Block of China. In this study, paleoseismic trenching...

Weathering process of the alluvial fans in western Sichuan basin, eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau

June 2021
Dawei Jiang | Shimin Zhang | Rui Ding

Correlating morphological surfaces, such as terraces and alluvial fans, is necessary in geomorphology researches. Gravel characteristics have been analysed to estimate the weathering degree. However,...

The variations of electron density and temperature related to seismic activities observed by CSES

June 2021
Keying Zhu | Lin Zheng | Rui Yan | Xuhui Shen | Zhima Zeren | Song Xu | Wei Chu | Dapeng Liu | Na Zhou | Feng Guo

In this study, we present the variations of electron density (Ne) and electron temperature (Te) in the nighttime ionosphere above the areas of seismic activities by the statistical method. The Ne and...

Coulomb stress changes associated with the M7.3 Maduo earthquake and implications for seismic hazards

June 2021
Yujiang Li | Luyuan Huang | Rui Ding | Shuxin Yang | Lei Liu | Shimin Zhang | Haoqing Liu

On May 21, 2021, the M7.3 Maduo earthquake occurred within the Bayan Har Block, one of the most seismically active regions in the Tibetan Plateau. This aroused attention to the seismic hazards in this...

Lessons from the casualties caused by the Changning Ms 6.0 earthquake in China

One case study shows an important phenomenon: Active fault can cause subtle spectral features change of soil

June 2021
Jing Cui | Shimin Zhang | Xu Wang | Jingfa Zhang | Rui Ding | Zhidan Chen | Xinfeng Dong

Buried fault identification in plains is one of the important and difficult problems in current active fault research. Seismic activity forces crustal fluid to migrate up, especially along faults, thereby...

An empirical method to estimate earthquake direct economic losses using building damages in high intensity area as a proxy

June 2021
Xihai Zhang | Xun Zeng | Gaozhong Nie | Xiwei Fan

It is well known that earthquake brings about gigantic direct and indirect economic losses, such as building and lifeline system damages, every year at the global scales. Thus, efficient and accurately...
