Development of Global Seismology

Mr Mohsen Dezvareh who is a Research Associate at the Seismology Research Center, International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology in Tehran, Iran has produced two posters which summarise the development of Global Seismology. They can be downloaded using the following links:

Development of Global Seismology (from Myth to Reality)

Historical Development of Global Seismology (132 - 2008)


by Arthur Snoke

The following software package is a cross-platform accessible version of Kennett and Buland's "iaspei-tau" package for generating and using the travel time tables for velocity models iasp91 and ak135. This is an update to the 2008 package.

Software for constructing iaspei91 and ak135 travel-time tables: Implementation of Arthur Snoke, available at the IRIS software library.

More information can be found at Snoke, J.A. (2009), Traveltime Tables for iasp91 and ak135, Seismological Research Letters, 80(2), 260-262

Seismological Tables for the ak135 model

by Brian Kennett

I attach a PDF copy of a Seismological tables booklet for the ak135 model which could be made available for download from the IASPEI site.

The IASP91 tables are out of print and I have felt for some time that we should have an update, but it has been difficult to find the time.

This new pamphlet contains some new features but every table in the older book is present.

Kashmir Earthquake Quicklook Report from the MAE Center

by Amr Elnashai <>

Please find attached the MAE Center Kashmir earthquake Quicklook Report. It contains some early analyses of strong-motion data. We are working on a more comprehensive report that will include several structural and geotechnical back-analyses. We would very much welcome your comments on the attached short report so that we can adjust our scope of work for the full report accordingly.

If you have a web site where you post documents of general interest to the earthquake engineering community, please consider posting the MAE Center Kashmir report on your web site.
