ES 21:S1 (Dec 2005) 2003 Bam, Iran, Earthquake Reconnaissance Report

Technical editors for EERI: Farzad Naeim, Michael Mehrain, Yousef Bozorgnia, and Ronald T. Eguchi; for the International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology in Tehran, Iran: Mohsen Ghafory-Ashtiany. The December 26, 2003, magnitude 6.6 earthquake that struck Bam, Iran, was one of the most disastrous earthquakes in the country’s recorded history. Anywhere between 31,000 to 43,000 lives were lost (definitive data not available) out of a population of about 142,000 in Bam and surrounding areas; the surviving inhabitants were rendered homeless. This comprehensive report required the collaboration, under adverse conditions, of engineers and scientists from many countries. In addition to covering the topics of geology, seismology, strong motion measurements, performance of buildings and lifelines, and societal impacts, the report contains a section devoted to the utilization of remote sensing and a related 18-page section of color figures. December 2005, 554 pp.
