Free downloadable PDF of CUREE Multi-volume Papers on the Northridge Earthquake

About This Publication

The four NEHRP agencies -- FEMA, NIST, NSF, and USGS -- funded CUREE to convene a national conference after the Northridge Earthquake of 1994 to bring together researchers and practitioners to assess what had been learned from that event. The four-volume set of papers is the most comprehensive single source of information on that earthquake, spanning the disciplines of Engineering, Social Sciences and Emergency Management, and Earth Science.

As the twentieth anniversary (January 17, 2014) of the earthquake approaches, readers are invited to a free pdf copy of the Proceedings of the NEHRP Conference and Workshop on Research on the Northridge, California Earthquake of January 17, 1994.
