Rockbursts and Seismicity in Mines 97 Proceedings of the 4th international symposium, Krakow, Poland, 11-14 August 1997 Synopsis

This volume contains 6 keynote lectures and 63 technical papers on the subject, written by experts from 15 countries. 5 themes are explored: Mechanism of seismic events and rockbursts, monitoring of seismicity; Geology, mining and seismicity; Rockburst hazard assessment and ground control; and Induced seismicity and laboratory experiments. Scientists and engineers brought together to Krakow from around the world have discussed the latest developments in theoretical and experimental understanding of rockbursts and related seismic events, and practical procedures to mitigate their effects. This proceedings volume is essential reading for anyone concerned with ground control in mining and for geoscientists seeking a new insight into earthquake mechanics.
