YMC Webinar: Training and Communication for Earthquake Risk Assessment (TREQ) Project and Applications for Urban Risk Assessment

Wednesday, June 7, 2023
10:00-11:30 AM
REGISTER HERE

treq mapEERI’s Younger Members Committee (YMC) invites you to a FREE webinar on the the Training and Communication for Earthquake Risk Assessment (TREQ) project and urban risk assessment. Experts from GEM, PartnerRe, and USGS will introduce TREQ, which aims to demonstrate how earthquake hazard and risk assessment can inform decision-makers in the development of risk reduction policies, as well as how earthquake risk can be properly communicated to stakeholders and the public in general. The project is organized into two main parts. The first one aimed to develop capacity for urban earthquake hazard and risk assessment in Latin America, Quito (Ecuador), Cali (Colombia), and Santiago de los Caballeros (Dominican Republic); while the second part developed training, educational and communication material to enhance the understanding of earthquake risk worldwide.

Moderator: Prajakta Jadhav, University of British Columbia

Speakers:

  • Catalina Yepes-Estrada, Senior Risk Scientist, GEM Foundation
  • Kendra Johnson, Seismic Hazard Analyst, GEM Foundation
  • Robin Gee, Seismic Hazard and Risk Modeler, PartnerRe
  • Alejandro Calderón, Seismic Risk Engineer, GEM Foundation
  • Kishor Jaiswal, Research Civil Engineer, USGS
  • Robert Chase, Research Civil Engineer, USGS

LFE Kahramanmaraş Earthquakes Reconnaissance Webinar Series: Geotechnical Impacts (with GEER)

EERI's Learning From Earthquakes (LFE) Program invites you to a FREE webinar series this month with the LFE and GEER reconnaissance teams that traveled to Turkey in March to assess the impacts of the February 6, 2023 Kahramanmaraş Earthquake Sequence.geer fault rupture

GEER Kahramanmaraş Earthquakes Reconnaissance Webinar: Geotechnical Impacts

10:00 AM-11:30 AM Pacific Time
REGISTER HERE 

On May 30, in the final webinar in this series, the Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance (GEER) Association will share reconnaissance findings on the geotechnical impacts of the February 6, 2023 earthquake sequence. GEER and EERI sent an advance reconnaissance team to Turkey in mid-February, a week after the earthquakes, to collect perishable data and identify areas for further research. A Phase I GEER team followed to collect data along extensive fault ruptures, inspect affected dams, and map areas with variable levels of liquefaction-related damage. A Phase II GEER team later performed reconnaissance of liquefaction-related damage to port facilities and foundations. Members of all teams will join the webinar to present on their findings and respond to questions from the audience.

Moderator: Jonathan Stewart, UCLA

Speakers:

  • Kemal Önder Çetin, Middle East Technical University
  • Özgür Kozacı, Pacific Gas & Electric
  • Tristan Buckreis, UCLA
  • Diane Moug, Portland State University
  • Kristin Ulmer, Southwest Research Institute
  • Robb Moss, California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo
  • David Frost, Georgia Institute of Technology

LFE Kahramanmaraş Earthquakes Reconnaissance Webinar Series: Buildings

EERI's Learning From Earthquakes (LFE) Program invites you to a FREE webinar series this month with the LFE and GEER reconnaissance teams that traveled to Turkey in March to assess the impacts of the February 6, 2023 Kahramanmaraş Earthquake Sequence.

The EERI Buildings Team traveled more than 3200 kilometers through the earthquake-affected region of Turkey in mid-March 2023, conducting reconnaissance in İskenderun, Samandağı, Kırıkhan, Antakya, Adana, Osmaniye, Kahramanmaraş, Gaziantep, Adıyaman, Gölbaşı, Malatya, Hassa, İslahiye and Nurdağı. The team focused on understanding the overall structural performance of buildings, including correlation with peak ground intensity at nearby ground motion recording stations. The majority of the buildings were residential, but the team also documented and categorized the response of industrial facilities, commercial buildings, school buildings, and religious and historical structures. The building sample includes reinforced concrete, steel moment frame, precast concrete, and unreinforced masonry buildings. The team also recorded damage to nonstructural building components. In this webinar, members of the team will present their findings and respond to questions.

Moderator: Eduardo Miranda, Stanford University

Speakers:

  • Parth Gudhka, IMEG
  • Bora Genturk, University of Southern California
  • Halil Sezen, Ohio State University (team lead)
  • Rupa Garai, SOM
  • Morgan Griffith, Exponent
  • Michael Mieler, ARUP

An additional webinars will take place in the following week at the same time on Tuesday. The May 30th webinar will focus on geotechnical impacts, with members of the GEER reconnaissance teams.
