Sebastiano D'Amico

Sebastiano D’Amico (Ph.D.) has been working as Research Officer III at the University of Malta, within the Physics Department, since 2010. He was enrolled in the Physics program of the University of Messina where he was awarded the title of “Dottore in Fisica”. In 2005 he moved to Rome where he joined the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV). In 2007 he married Rosarianna and together with his wife he moved to U.S.A. to join the Saint Louis University (Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department). His research interests are in the applied aspects of earthquake seismology. He is the author of several publications in this field. In particular, he is interested in seismicity and tectonics of the Central Mediterranean, earthquake ground motion and seismic hazard, earthquake moment tensor solutions, and ambient noise measurements on soil and buildings

Latest work with IntechOpen by Sebastiano D'Amico

This book is devoted to different aspects of earthquake research. Depending on their magnitude and the placement of the hypocenter, earthquakes have the potential to be very destructive. Given that they can cause significant losses and deaths, it is really important to understand the process and the physics of this phenomenon. This book does not focus on a unique problem in earthquake processes, but spans studies on historical earthquakes and seismology in different tectonic environments, to more applied studies on earthquake geology.
