10th national conference on earthquake engeneering

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

The Tenth U.S. National Conference on Earthquake Engineering, on the 50th Anniversary of the Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunami, will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share the latest knowledge and techniques to mitigate the damaging effects of earthquakes and tsunamis. This conference is being planned by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) in collaboration with the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES).

Building earthquake resilience through technology

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

As we approach the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake, it is time to ask the question, “Is California better prepared for a catastrophic event?” and “Are there new technology solutions that can make a difference in saving lives and property?”.

Since the Loma Prieta event, California’s population, physical infrastructure, and GDP, have all increased dramatically and researchers are now predicting a high probability of a major earthquake occurring in a densely populated area of California within the next 20 to 30 years.

Scientific data helps create seismic hazard maps

Fault lines in Los Angeles region , showing possible high risk seismic zones

The newly created Southern California Earthquake Center has build up a data base of the region’s seismographic nature in hope to prevent devastating events like in the 1989 San Francisco 6.7 Magnitude Earthquake through better risk assessment.

Study: High risk for Earthquake and Tsunami in Caribbean

The shaking hazard from the scenario earthquake is limited to Guadeloupe.

USGS and French researchers studying the plate boundary in the Lesser Antilles region—the area where 20 of the 26 Caribbean islands are located—estimate that enough unreleased strain may have accumulated offshore of Guadeloupe to potentially create a magnitude 8.0-8.4 earthquake, as USGS announced on its website. The paper was recently published in the

New global map shows probable giant earthquake locations

The map shows the points where giant earthquakes are possible.

International researchers at the Monash University, Australia created a global map showing the points where giant earthquakes are possible to happen.

Most earthquakes occur when tectonic plates are moving. Giant earthquake can occur at subduction zones – where one plate sinks below the other. The information so far was unreliable, mostly because giant earthquakes are relatively rare and tracking record goes as far as the 19th hundred.
