Three large earthquakes (M5.9 to M6.5) struck the Mt. Vettore region of the Central Apennines in Italy between August 24 and October 30 in 2016. The Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association (GEER) sent reconnaissance teams to the damaged area twice following these events: after the initial M6.0 in late August, and again after the larger M6.5 event in early December. Challenging terrain and geo-political conditions made traditional engineering reconnaissance of the affected villages and slope/rock slopes difficult, if not impossible. Read more

February 2018 Chapter Meeting

Evacuation Modeling to Reduce Human Vulnerability to Seismic Events

Speaker: Dr. Mathew Schmidtlein | California State University, Sacramento

When: February 22, 2018 | 6 PM

Where: California State University, Sacramento | Folsom Hall 1049

Increasing coastal populations mean that more people are exposed to coastal hazards such as tsunamis. Evacuation planning is an important tool in reducing human losses to tsunamis. This presentation describes the development of models used to estimate pedestrian evacuation times and show how those models can be used to help reduce human vulnerability to these potentially devastating events.
