Webinar – The significance of liquefaction in earthquake disasters

The importance of liquefaction as a principal-agent of fatalities and destruction in earthquake disasters has had to be reconsidered. We now fully appreciate how liquefaction is a separate damage mechanism to earthquake vibration. If half of the damage or fatalities can be driven by liquefaction what does that tell us around the priorities in modeling earthquake impacts? Where else can we anticipate comparable disasters and what actions can we take to highlight the risks ultra-liquefaction brings to life and property?

Dr Robert Muir-Wood approaches these questions in a webinar from 18:30 to 19:45 on April 28th, 2021.
