Cheng Shaoping and Yang Guizhi. DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE IN PALEOSEISMOLOGY[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 1993, 8(1): 21-27.
Paleoseismology is a new subdiscipline in the earthscience field, developing for the need of earthquake-hazard assessments of major engineering and construction projects, whose principal extent is identification and study of prehistoric earthquakes. Based on analogy to the geologic effects associated with historic surface faulting earthquakes, paleoseismic studies have provided a vast amount of prehistoric earthquake evidences in different tectonic environments, and have attempted to establish various faulting earthquakes.Based on analogy of the geologic effects associated with
