Geometrical focusing as a mechanism for significant amplification of ground motion in sedimentary basins: analytical and numerical study
We study the geometrical and material conditions which lead to focusing of seismic waves traveling across a concave velocity interface representing the boundary of a sedimentary basin within a denser rock. We approximate, ...
Simulation of Seismic?Wave Propagation through Geometrically Complex Basins: The Dead Sea Basin
The Dead Sea Transform (DST) is the source for some of the largest earthquakes in the eastern Mediterranean. The seismic hazard presented by the DST threatens the Israeli, Palestinian, and Jordanian populations alike. ...
2D Analysis of Earthquake Ground Motion in Haifa Bay, Israel
We study the earthquake response of the Zevulun Valley basin, underlying northern Israel’s largest urban area, with 2D viscoelastic seismic modeling of a detailed geological section. We found that amplification of the ...
