Description
 
George W. Housner (ed). A key question that must be addressed in earthquake hazard reduction is: How much loss might a city or region experience from future earthquakes? The destructiveness of an earthquake depends on its size, its proximity, & the state of preparation. When all 3 are adverse they combine to produce a great disaster. This set of guidelines for a recommended loss estimation methodology includes: basic method; considerations of uncertainty; user needs; ground-shaking hazard; bldg. damage & losses; collateral hazards; damage & losses to special facilities & urban systems; indirect losses; rapid post-earthquake loss estimates; conclusions & recommendations; & references.
