Many natural hazards or geological phenomena satisfy power-law (fractal) frequency-size statistics to a good approximation for medium and large events. Examples include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, asteroid impacts, landslides, and forest ﬁres. So my questions is that, Why geological phenomena exhibit a power law distribution, and how special is that kind of statistical distribution?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
