Abstract
This annual collection consists of abstracts and citations of current literature pertinent to the field of earthquake hazards mitigation. It contains over 1,600 abstracts of technical papers, research reports, books, codes, and conference proceedings. Abstracts are drawn from 98 technical journals, and from the publications of academic, professional, and governmental organizations in 23 countries. Selected topics include: seismology, engineering seismology; strong motion seismology; dynamics of soils, rocks, and foundations; dynamics of structures; earthquake resistant design and construction, and hazard reduction; earthquake effects; and earthquakes as natural disasters. The journal also includes a list of titles, and author and subject indexes.
