    Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) offer an efficient method for finding optimal cleanup strategies for hazardous plumes contaminating groundwater by allowing hydrologists to rapidly search through millions of possible strategies to find the most inexpensive and effective containment of contaminants and aquifer restoration. ANNs also provide a faster method of developing systems that classify seismic events as being earthquakes or underground explosions.Farid Dowla and Leah Rogers have developed a number of ANN applications for researchers and students in hydrology and seismology. This book, complete with exercises and ANN algorithms, illustrates how ANNs can be used in solving problems in environmental engineering and the geosciences, and provides the necessary tools to get started using these elegant and efficient new techniques.Following the development of four primary ANN algorithms (backpropagation, self-organizing, radial basis functions, and hopfield networks), and a discussion of important issues in ANN formulation (generalization properties, computer generation of training sets, causes of slow training, feature extraction and preprocessing, and performance evaluation), readers are guided through a series of straightforward yet complex illustrative problems. These include groundwater remediation management, seismic discrimination between earthquakes and underground explosions, automated monitoring for acoustic and seismic sensor data, estimation of seismic sources, geospatial estimation, lithologic classification from geophysical logging, earthquake forecasting, and climate change. Each chapter contains detailed exercises often drawn from field data that use one or more of the four primary ANN algorithms presented.

  • Application of Evolutionary Programming To Earthquake Hypocenter Determination

    As models of seismic velocity in the Earth's crust are refined to accommodate larger and better data sets, they tend to become locally "rough" where they are best resolved, with nonplanar interfaces, and complex structures. This means that perturbation techniques which rely on differentiability of travel- times with respect to source coordinates are likely to fail, or to give erroneous results with little evidence that the answer is wrong. With even relatively simple three-dimensional structures involving dipping discontinuities, correct identification of seismic arrivals--or "phases"--can be problematic, and precise event locations elusive. We investigate the applicability of evolutionary programming to this problem and conclude that it yields satisfactory results, provided that no gross errors are present in the observations. Realistic applications to routine locations of earthquakes in a three-dimensional crustal model call for an effective ray tracing and travel time calculation strategy.

  • Strain Localization within Fault Arrays over Timescales of 100-107 Years

    Statistical characterization of fault networks, combined with an analysis of geodetic data and the location of historical earthquakes, is a method commonly used to quantify the degree of strain localization in a given tectonic setting. However, such analyses do not address the fundamental questions of why, how, and when (i.e., after what percent total strain) does localization occur on a lithospheric scale. Many studies suggest that the initial phase of crustal deformation is characterized by distributed strain accumulation and structural complexity and that the system evolves towards highly localized deformation on a small number of discrete fault zones. What controls the transition from one regime to the other within a rheologically layered lithosphere? Observations of the evolution of fault networks over a range of spatial and temporal scales may help us to understand the underlying controls on the localization process. Dip-slip faults, especially moderate to high- angle extensional structures, inherently provide the best conditions for preserving such temporal information over geological time because they generate adjacent sedimentary depocenters that usually remain undeformed by subsequent movement on the fault. The aim of this paper is (a) to review recent observations of extensional fault growth, (b) to summarize conclusions drawn from these observations concerning the underlying controls on strain localization in extensional settings, and (c) to discuss the relevance of these observations to other tectonic settings. In particular, several of the ideas that have been derived from studies of strain localization in extensional settings are used to reexamine existing theories concerning strike-slip fault evolution.

  • Seismic Fault Rheology and Earthquake Dynamics

    As preparation for this Dahlem Workshop on The Dynamics of Fault Zones, specifically on the subtopic "Rheology of Fault Rocks and Their Surroundings," we addressed critical research issues for understanding the seismic response of fault zones in terms of the constitutive response of fault materials. This requires new concepts and a host of new observations and experiments to document material response, to understand the shear localization process and the inception of earthquake instability, and especially to understand the mechanisms of fault weakening and dynamics of rupture tip propagation and arrest during rapid, possibly large, slip in natural events. We examine in turn the geological structure of fault zones and its relation to earthquake dynamics, the description of rate and state friction at slow rates appropriate to the interseismic period and earthquake nucleation, and the dynamics of fault weakening during rapid slip. The last topic gets special attention in view of the important recent advances in theoretical concepts and experiments to probe the range of slip rates prevailing during earthquakes. We then address the assembly of the constitutive framework into viable, but necessarily simplified, conceptual and computational models for description of the dynamics of crustal earthquake rupture. This is done principally in the slip-weakening framework, and we examine some of the uncertainties in doing so, and issues of how new understanding of the rapid large slip range will be integrated to model the traction evolution and the weakening process during large slip episodes.

  • Constraining the Denudational Response to Faulting

    Denudation links tectonics with climate by changing topographic loads and promoting the drawdown of CO2. Measurements of denudation are a key to understanding this link. In particular, they are required to test and calibrate geodynamic models, to evaluate the tectonic control on landscape evolution, to quantify the geomorphic impact of faulting and seismicity, and to assess the role of tectonically driven denudation in stabilizing Earth's climate. We review techniques used to measure denudation, and weathering on timescales relevant to faulting and the dynamics of fault zones, with particular attention paid to the use of hydrometric data and cosmogenic isotopes. Using selected examples, we illustrate the application of these techniques to problems ranging from soil formation and coseismic erosion of earthquake epicentral areas to the erosion of orogens and estimation of catchment-scale erosion and weathering fluxes. The examples show that faulting is the Earth's premier erosion and weathering engine. Globally, erosion scales with tectonic forcing. Locally, fluvial incision and landscape lowering are correlated with faulting and seismic activity. Thus, tectonically active areas yield disproportionate amounts of sediment. Erosion refreshes rock surfaces in these areas, thereby enhancing chemical weathering rates and CO2 consumption. The effects of climate variability and change are evident in the patterns and rates of erosion and weathering. However, they are almost always superimposed on a stronger tectonic signal. We highlight the potential of cosmogenic nuclides to quantify present and past rates and patterns of denudation associated with faulting. Finally, we identify outstanding challenges for future work: (a) to characterize crustal deformation, climate, and denudation over their full range of time and length scales; (b) to analyze the geomorphic imp act and stratigraphic record of recent earthquakes; (c) to identify the processes, thresholds, and feedback mechanisms that control global weathering and regulate the long-term climate; and (d) to provide constraints that help to mitigate the risks associated with geomorphic processes triggered by earthquakes. Constraining the denudational response to faulting will help to meet these challenges.

  • Controlling Civil Infrastructures

    Controls is well-established in most of the major engineering disciplines- electrical, chemical, mechanical, aerospace. Historically, an important exception has been civil engineering, and, as this chapter illustrates, recent developments are bridging the gap. The importance of understanding the dynamics of civil structures has been recognized since the 1940 Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse, but feedback control of buildings, bridges, towers, and other structures is a relatively recent development. The concept of active control for such systems was first introduced in 1972. Since then, a vast literature has been generated on the topic, and, more impressively, a number of successful implementations have been completed (the first full-scale one in 1989). Many of the largest applications have been to buildings in Japan, driven by the desire to achieve protection against earthquakes. The first implementation of structural control was based on active mass dampers (AMDs). An AMD system couples an auxiliary mass to the structure through an actuator. Sensor measurements of building movement and stresses are used in a control algorithm to move the auxiliary mass relative to the building. Such systems are versatile and capable, but issues of reliability and power consumption have driven the search for improvements. The next significant development was controllers that employed a combination of active and passive devices. These hybrid active/passive control systems (no relationship to the hybrid discrete/continuous systems discussed in Chapter 7) rely on one of two approaches: hybrid mass damping and hybrid base isolation. The former is especially popular. The largest building in Japan, the Yokohama Landmark Tower, incorporates two hybrid mass dampers (HMDs), each weighing 170 tons. The most recent innovation is the semiactive control device. These devices cannot i nject mechanical energy into the structure but have properties that can be manipulated to achieve structural disturbance rejection. In many cases, they can operate on battery power; this is a significant advantage since seismic events can interrupt main power supplies. Examples of semiactive devices include variable-orifice fluid dampers, variable-stiffness devices, variable-friction devices, controllable and tuned liquid dampers, and magnetorheological dampers. The last topic is discussed at some length in this chapter, and experimental results are shown.
