Abstract

Terrestrial Fluids, Earthquakes and Volcanoes: The Hiroshi Wakita Volume III is a special publication to honor Professor Hiroshi Wakita for his scientific contributions to science, which have been closely linked with one of the major objectives of the 2008 International Year for the Earth Planet. Reducing natural risks in active tectonic and volcanic environments by searching for and detecting early warning signatures related to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions has been a major research goal for Hiroshi Wakita. The volume III consists of nine original papers written by researchers from Taiwan, Italy, Turkey, Iceland, USA, Sweden, India and Spain dealing with various aspects of the role of terrestrial fluids in earthquake and volcanic processes, which reflect Prof. Wakita’s wide scope of research interests. The volumes I and II consist of 17 and 10 original contributions which were published in Pure and Applied Geophysics on May 2006 and December 2007, respectively. These Pure and Applied Geophysics Hiroshi Wakita volumes should be useful for active researchers in the subject field, and graduate students who wish to become acquainted with them.
