Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue “Seismically Induced Multi-Hazards” in Geosciences from MDPI is intended to collect high-quality publications in the fields of applied seismology and geophysics, engineering geology and geotechnics, and paleoseismology and earthquake geology. Papers should discuss recent analyses of multiple types of surface and ground motion effects, as well as cascading hazards (including dam formation and breaching, and mass movement impacts on lakes and post-seismic debris flows), induced by earthquakes. Related studies may focus on ancient, historical, or recent events; on back-analyses, local, and regional (probabilistic) hazard assessment; or on scenario calculations. Particularly welcome are contributions discussing the use of various investigation and simulation methods to evaluate seismically induced landslide hazards, analysing extreme seismic ground failure susceptibility (including liquefaction) in weak soils, such as loess and volcanic deposits, relating multiple ground failure processes to elastic seismic ground motion characteristics, assessing trigger mechanisms over short and longer terms, in soils and rocks, both in subaerial and subaquatic environments, near the activated fault (and the possible related surface rupture) or far from the epicentre.

The Special Issue will start with a review paper written by the guest editors on the relative importance of seismically induced multi-hazard studies in overall earthquake hazard and risk assessment, with applications in mountainous, coastal, lake, and urban environments.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
