    Foreshocks, small earthquakes that sometimes precede the main earthquake, can be used as a warning system that a large shock may be on the way. Thousands of aftershocks may follow an earthquake and can be quite destructive, especially to those structures that have already been weakened and damaged. study of volcano formations, eruptions, & their effects on peoople & the enviorment shield rapid lava flows that spread out and easily & quickly forms smooth gentle slopes as it hardens -- usully lava.

Estimation of the macroeconomic effects of an earthquake critically depends on the identification of the affected area's boundaries, socioeconomic local heterogeneity and proper counterfactual. The purpose of this chapter is to raise questions about the differential impacts (or effects) that earthquake events may have.

Certainly, earthquakes of different magnitudes and intensities will have differential effects, as will seismic events that take place in different types of geologic areas (as were described by Dr. Hamilton in his presentation). Estimation of the macroeconomic effects of an earthquake critically depends on the identification of the affected area's boundaries, socioeconomic local heterogeneity and proper counterfactual analysis.

Scientists working in the field of geology can specialize in volcanos, groundwater, or. Paleoseismology is a relatively young method of earthquake studies at the interface between geology and seismology.

Paleoseismic investigations have enriched the fault rupture database in some active zones (e.g., California, Turkey, Italy) and contribute to a significant progress in the concept of earthquake cycle.

methodologies exist for evaluating the socio-economic consequences of large earthquakes. The principal conclusion drawn from this review is that of the existing methodologies provide a complete, comprehensive method for assessing or predicting the full range. Greater understanding of the effects of an earthquake in designing buildings is achieved as these codes and computer program became available.

Together with the analysis method, building codes and computer program, it became easier to model the effects of an earthquake and design buildings that could resist the forces involved.In April a book by Hill, Southern Cali dust cover of this book boldly proclaimed that it "completely refutes the predictions of Professor Bailey Willis that Los Angeles is about to be destroyed by earthquakes.
