Glossy seismology has confronted new demanding situations within the research of earthquakes and their actual features. This quantity is devoted to using new ways and provides a cutting-edge in old seismology. chosen ancient and up to date earthquakes are selected to record and constrain comparable seismic parameters utilizing up to date methodologies within the macroseismic research, box observations of wear and tear distribution and tectonic results, and modelling of seismic waveforms.

N. uk J. Fr´echet et al. V. 2008 25 26 N. N. Ambraseys The literary and field studies of ancient and modern earthquakes show that people view differently the challenges and hazards of their natural environment. In historical times the damage and sudden crippling of the economy of a state, had lead to population movements, emigration, crises in political affairs, triggering invasions and wars as well as truce between belligerent states. Loss of life should have been considerable but difficult to estimate.

Ambraseys I met Jean Vogt in London about 35 years ago; there and then, it became clear that there was an affinity between us. He was an indefatigable protester of the system in which science works today, and the fact that he always called a spade a spade, often did not endear him to others.
