Earthquake generation: Earth structure, plate tectonics, fault rupture and elastic rebound; seismic waves and ray theory. Earthquake observation: seismographs and seismograms; hypocentral location; fault plane solution; magnitude and seismic moment; instrumental and historical seismicity, macroseismic scales and isoseismal maps. Earthquake strong-motion: accelerographs and accelerograms; strong-motion parameters; engineering characterisation of seismic input; attenuation relationships; simulation of acceleration-time histories. Seismic hazard analysis: deterministic hazard assessment; probabilistic hazard assessment; stationary and non-stationary models; hazard mapping and zonation; site effects; simulation scenarios.
