"What can we learn from past earthquakes?"

Geotechnical earthquake engineering is a continuously evolving field, in which most scientific advancements are based on observations and data which are collated after major seismic events. The talk will give examples on how the catastrophic consequences on the urban environment of recent major earthquakes have shaped the research agenda in this field and have led to improvements in assessing geotechnical hazards related to earthquakes such as soil liquefaction, ground shaking amplification and slope instability.
