The M9 research team presents at the 11th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering

On June 28th, the M9 research team will be presenting on the impacts of a magnitude 9 earthquake on the Pacific Northwest at the 11th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering.

The first of two sessions covers advances made by the M9 Project researchers in predicting the ground motions for the Magnitude 9 Cascadia event, characterizing those ground motions, and exploring the response of structural systems to such motions, including the effects of deep basin amplification and duration. Additional presentations on the response of structures to subduction interface ground motions are contributed by colleagues at the University of British Columbia.

The second of two sessions covers advances made by the M9 Project researchers in understanding liquefaction in long-duration ground motions, landslide triggering in large magnitude subduction earthquakes, tsunami inundation modeling, structural behavior in tsunamis, effective use of earthquake early warning systems and community planning that includes uncertainty and builds on community values.
