Seismic Resources on the World Wide Web

Developed for the Georgia Tech Earthquake Hazards and Recording Workshop

 

Supported by The Mid America Earthquake Center (MAEC), a consortium of seven universities funded by the Earthquake Hazard Mitigation Program at The National Science Foundation.

The goal of the MAEC is to address mitigation of earthquake effects
in the central and eastern U.S.

Offered by the Georgia Institute of Technology
Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department
and CEISMC.

June 22-25, 1998
