AFTEREFFECTS OF SEISMIC CATASTROPHES

The author speaks not only about the social aftereffects of tectonic catastrophes, but also about economic losses-actual and potential. In particular, he tells about the project of laying a Taishet-Vladivostok oil pipeline through the northernmost part of the Baikal Rift, i.e. in the most seism ... Read more
