This book covers multi-disciplinary topics in observational, computational and applied geophysics in aspects of solid earth system, including eight Chapters: (i) image subsurface rupture zones of South Napa earthquake in California by fault-zone trapped waves, (ii) introduce fault-zone trapped waves recorded for teleseismic earthquakes to document deep fault compliant zone, (iii) towards rea-time estimate strong ground motion based on full-3D waveform tomography, (iv) implement ETAS models to earthquake zones with different tectonic structures, (v) towards understand erosional agency and cascading hazards for earthquake-triggering landslides, (vi) simulate coal and gas outburst by discrete element and lattice Boltzmann model, (vii) review international consultation on the likelihood of earthquakes after Wenchuan earthquake using various methods, and (viii) provide a real forward earthquake prediction test in China. Authors from global institutions illuminate multi-disciplinary topics with case studies. All topics in this book help further understanding earthquake physics and hazard assessment in global seismogenic regions.
