Abstract

Vulnerability to earthquakes increases steadily as urbanization and development expand in areas that are prone to the effects of significant earthquakes. As virtually all of the largest earthquakes of the past decade demonstrated, the development of large cities in high seismicity areas is often based on an insufficient knowledge or distorted perception of the local seismic hazard, a condition often worsened by the construction of seismically unsafe buildings and infrastructures.
