ES 22:S1 (Mar 2006) 2004 Niigata Ken Chuetsu, Japan, Earthquake Reconnaissance Report CD-ROM

This CD contains the 2004 Niigata Ken Chuetsu, Japan, Earthquake Reconnaissance Report, with all figures in color; Charles Scawthorn and Ellen Rathje, tech. eds. The magnitude 6.6 October 23, 2004, Niigata Ken Chuetsu, Japan, earthquake was the most significant earthquake to affect Japan since the 1995 Kobe earthquake, killing 48 people and injuring 4,160. Hundreds of major landslides destroyed entire upland villages and caused extensive damage to roads, rail lines and other lifelines, resulting in an estimated cost of US $40 billion. Two reconnaissance teams supported by EERI employed new technologies such as handheld global positioning systems, satellite imagery, and light detection and ranging, which facilitated more rapid and detailed data collection than was possible in previous earthquake damage surveys. This report covers the topics of seismology and strong ground motions, geotechnical aspects, landslides, buildings, lifelines, transportation systems, reconnaissance technologies, ground-LIDAR visualization, and socioeconomic, policy and planning aspects. Special Issue I of Earthquake Spectra 22, March 2006.
