Call for Papers: Lessons from the past: the evolution of seismic protection techniques in the history of building


The special issue will focus on recent advances in the monitoring and analysis, as part of the seismic risk assessment, of archaeological sites and structures with particular emphasis on the following topics:

  • Historical studies;
  • Construction techniques used in the past;
  • Geological, geotechnical and geophysical characterization of historic sites;
  • Materials characterization and seismic vulnerability of historic structures;
  • Innovative monitoring techniques for historic site and structures;
  • Experimental analysis of historic and monumental structures.

Call for Papers: Advances in multi-parametric, time-Dependent Assessment of Seismic Hazard and Earthquakes Forecast


Although the problem of earthquake forecast is in our times “The Holy Grail of Earth Physics and Seismology” the real-time integration of multi-parametric observations has already demonstrated a high potential in the development of operational time-Dependent Assessment of Seismic Hazard(t-DASH) systems suitable for supporting decision makers with continuously updated seismic hazard scenarios. However, a crucial step in this direction is the identification of those parameters (seismological, geophysical, geochemical, etc.), whose multi scaled space-time dynamics and/or anomalous variability, has to be associated with the complex process of preparation of major earthquakes.
