ES 30:1 (Feb 2014) 2010-2011 Canterbury Earthquake Sequence

The February 2014 special issue of Earthquake Spectra is devoted to the 2010–2011 Canterbury, New Zealand, earthquake sequence. The widespread damage to buildings and lifelines from relatively low-magnitude earthquakes raises important questions about the risk to urban centers around the world from unmapped faults. The similarity of historical and modern construction practices with other developed countries means the damage to the built environment in Christchurch is relevant to potential infrastructure damage in many parts of the world, including the United States, given similar earthquake shaking. This special issue of Earthquake Spectra represents the collaborative effort of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) and the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE); guest editors from both organizations coordinated the review of 26 papers exploring all aspects of the earthquake sequence.
