Elsevier's Developments in Geotechnical Engineering book series is designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of Geotechnical Engineering. The series is concerned with all geological studies that can be relevant to engineering, environmental concerns and safety, rock mechanics and the application of rock mechanics principles and techniques to mining and.

Foreshocks are key to understand the dynamics of earthquake processes, thus, they can lead to short-term earthquake prediction. The method consists the steps of detecting/observing a foreshock clustering/nucleation zone, which grew over a hours period prior to the main-shock occurrence, and studying the deepening of nucleation zone to foresee a hypocenter of a future moderate size.
