In addition to a truly global perspective on earthquakes and their effects, it has an impressively broad coverage of geology in general. and to the use of earthquake geology in earthquake hazard Reviews: 2. Determining your risk with regard to earthquakes, or more precisely shaking from earthquakes, isn't as simple as finding the nearest fault.

The chances of experiencing shaking from an earthquake and/or having property damage is dependent on many different factors. The National Hazard Maps use all available data to estimate the chances of shaking (of different strengths and. Based on a review of the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, Mt.
