Special Issue "What Is Really New in Seismic Response Analysis of Soil Deposits"
A special issue of Geosciences (ISSN 2076-3263).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2019).
Interests: soil dynamics, experimental soil mechanics, in situ geotechnical testing, earthworks QC/QA, earthquake geotechnical engineering
This Special Issue focuses on the lessons learned from the seismic monitoring of vertical and horizontal arrays. In particular, the scope is to add knowledge as far as the following aspects of seismic response analysis of soil deposits are concerned: a) influence of the deepness of the bedrock; b) criteria for the identification of the seismic bedrock; c) valley effects; d) the use of true non-linear models incorporating the soil strength; e) the seismic response of liquefiable deposits when liquefaction occurs (influence of soil failure); f) advances in soil dynamic characterization, with special attention to the in situ determination of attenuation parameters.
Of course, the seismic monitoring of strong earthquakes becomes of paramount importance with respect to the above-listed open questions.

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 papers will be 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 1200 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.
