Deep earthquakes (earthquakes with origins deeper than 60 km) are
of scientific importance and account for approximately one-quarter
of all earthquakes. They are occasionally very large and damaging
yet provide much of the data that constrain our knowledge of Earth
structure and dynamics. This book opens with an explanation of what
deep earthquakes are, their significance to science and how they
were first discovered. Later chapters provide a description of deep
earthquake distribution and clustering in both time and space; a
review of observations about source properties; and a discussion of
theories for the origin of deep earthquakes. The book concludes
with a comprehensive literature review of terrestrial and lunar
deep seismicity. Deep Earthquakes presents a comprehensive,
topical, historical, and geographical summary of deep earthquakes
and related phenomena. It will be of considerable interest to
researchers and graduate students in the fields of earthquake
seismology and deep Earth structure.
