I'm conducting research for a project which requires me to make some predictions on undersea slope stability in the event of an occurence of seismic activity. Apparently this will be an exercise in comparing and combining historical data with quantitative models, and an inexact science at best. As a mechanical engineer by training, and not a geologist, I feel as though I'm just scratching the surface of this subject, but I have discovered some useful information, mainly in the area of seismic charts and advanced seafloor mapping technology. I'd appreciate any suggestions (bibliographical references, contacts, etc) on how to quantify the information I collect in order to produce a numerical model of high risk areas on the seafloor. Thanks!
