During the past three decades, our knowledge of the seismic properties of minerals, rocks and ores has grown enormously, spurred by the determination of the structures and evolution of the Earth using innovative seismologic technologies (e.g., reflection profiling, tomography, shear-wave splitting), the mitigation of geological hazards (e.g., earthquakes and volcanic activity), and the exploration of mineral deposits, water and energy resources. This handbook provides engineers and scientists with a convenient, compact, authoritative, up-to-date and systematic compilation of the measured seismic properties of Earth materials. It contains almost all the reliable data of P and S wave velocities and anisotropy of various rocks, minerals and ores as functions of pressure and temperature, available in the literature published in English and French. It is much more comprehensive than any previous compilations.
Professionals and academics in the Earth sciences, petroleum and mining industry and geotechnical, mecanical and structural engineering and anyone interested in physical properties of natural materials and in elasticity of solids.
