Over the past half-century, numerous earthquake scientific investigations have been carried out by multiple scientific agencies, particularly by the China Earthquake Administration. Following earthquakes, a wealth of first-hand observational data, typical in-site samples, and valuable phenomena are acquired and subjected to these investigations. Based on reviews of the observational schemes and summarised reports of investigations organised by the China Earthquake Administration, a treatise entitled A Guidebook to Earthquake Scientific Investigation has recently been published.
For this special issue, we welcome research articles regarding all aspects of earthquake investigations, and studies of previous earthquakes.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Objectives, principles, contents and other components of earthquake investigation
- Case studiesof past earthquakes, addressing seismotectonic, seismic hazard, crustal deformation, geochemistry, gravimetry, deep sounding and strong ground motion etc.
- Submission deadline: 31 January 2023
- First review round: 30 March 2023
