Post-Earthquake Studies

Team Leader

Conducted extensive post-earthquake surveys of the following earthquakes in India:
  • Investigations of events during 1991 to 2001 were sponsored by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (USA) under its Learning From Earthquakes project with the National Science Foundation (USA).
  • Investigations of Jabalpur, Bhuj, Sumatra, and Kashmir earthquakes were also supported by Dept of Science and Technology, Govt of India.
  • The Bhuj earthquake investigation was carried out through a large Indo-US team; this investigation also included a co-team leader from USA.
  • Edited a special volume on Bhuj published by the EERI, USA. This volume is also available in the form of a CD. Also, another CD was prepared through EERI on the Annoted Images from this earthquake. Both the CDs have been widely distributed in India (more than 2000 copies each).
  • Prepared a 58-minute video-tape at IIT Kanpur, documenting the engineering, geological, and social aspects of the 1993 Killari earthquake.
