* Multidisciplinary approach of risk assessment and management, which can provide more efficient earthquake mitigation.

* Transfer of Geo-scientific and engineering knowledge to Civil Protection and insurance agents

* Approaches and common practices directly related to the preparation of earthquake emergency plans

* Illustrated examples of actual applications, including web sites

* Case-studies and information on relevant international projects


This book points out the need of a multidisciplinary approach in the field of risk assessment and management. It provides an overview of the problems, approaches and common practices directly related to earthquake risk mitigation and, in particular, to the preparation of earthquake emergency plans. Written by a team of specialists from different disciplines, the authors worked together extensively in order to create unity and continuity in the text as a whole. Each topic is illustrated with examples of actual applications taken from the bibliography including websites with available relevant information. Case studies and information on some relevant international projects are given.
This work will be of interest to students and professionals with a basic education in geology, geophysics, geotechnical and civil engineering, system analysis, geography and architecture. It can be used as a textbook for a specialized post-graduate course on the topic.

Table 1. 1 reports the world's largest earthquakes since 1900 with respect to number of deaths (larger than or equal to 10 000), also showing the region of occurrence and the corresponding magnitudes. Both, from Figure 1. 2 and Table 1. 1 it is interesting to note that this period of time is characterized by an annual average of 15 000 deaths with two main fluctuations (modal values), the largest in the period 1900 to 1940 and another with a larger value in the decade of 1970-80. Figure 1. 2 shows the number of total deaths from the greatest earthquakes that occurred in the XX century. Although the number of victims has a tendency to decrease with time, the economic losses are increasing significantly (see Chapter 18 of this book). Table 1. 1.
