"The book is a major revision and expansion of the first edition of 1996. In effect, a reader is in possession of a wise and comprehensive review of field techniques of data collection and interpretation, applicable to current seismic risk analysis and seismic hazard assessment. It is a rich resource of data, field techniques (geological and geophysical), thoughtful and reflective methodological considerations, and literature. The book will be a basic reference for graduate students and researchers in environmental and engineering geosciences and for Quaternary geologists."--Pure and Applied Geophysics
