Earthquake and Tsunami Hazards around the Pacific Rim APRU Research Symposium at Kyoto University Kojiro Irikura Vice President of Kyoto University Earthquake and Tsunami Hazards around the Pacific Rim This APRU Symposium will bring together researchers from a broad range of science and engineering fields related to earthquake and tsunami hazards around the Pacific Rim. The purpose of the meeting is to share information on the current state of knowledge and discuss priorities for future work that will contribute to mitigating losses from future large earthquakes Magnitude 9.0 Sumatra-Andaman Islands Earthquake The arrows show the vectors of the plate motions. After the web-site of British Geological Survey (2005) Special Focus on the devastating Sumatra earthquake and tsunami (>280,000 casualties) Tsunami simulation by Kenji Satake, Geol. Survey of Japan http:/staff.aist.go.jp/kenji.satake/animation.gif Practically every city near the member universities has some level of earthquake risk. Japan Taiwan California New Zealand Red dots are earthquakes. The ‘Ring of Fire’ surrounds the Pacific Rim There are a growing large number of mega-population centers around the Pacific rim that are prone to large earthquake and tsunami disasters, such as, Los Angeles Seattle Tokyo Osaka Taipei Damage from 1994 Northridge Earthquake Earthquake engineering standards have certainly improved over the last few decades, but because of growing populations, the yearly worldwide earthquake damage has not diminished greatly. Devastating fires following Collapsed 7 story building in 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake This is a very timely subject since many countries are actively involved in national seismic hazard programs, and comparisons on a worldwide basis would be useful. 今後５０年以内に１０％の確率で一定の震度以上の揺れに 見舞われる領域図：再現期間５００年に相当 地震調査研究推進本部 （２００３） This is a very timely subject since many countries are actively involved in national seismic hazard programs, and comparisons on a worldwide basis would be useful. 今後５０年以内に１０％の確率で一定の震度以上の揺れに 見舞われる領域図：再現期間５００年に相当 地震調査研究推進本部 （２００３） Dates: August 31 to September 2, 2005 Location: Kyoto University, Kyoto City, Japan Access: Kansai International Airport (Osaka) Bullet Train from Tokyo (2.3 hours) Preliminary Program Wednesday Aug 31 10:00am - 12:00pm Session 1: Earthquakes on the Pacific Rim 1:00pm - 2:00pm Poster Session 2:00pm - 4:00pm Session 2: Earthquake Source Physics 4:30pm - 6:30pm Session 3: Strong Ground Motion Thursday, September 1 9:00am - 11:00am Session 4: Sumatra Eq./Tsunami 1:00pm - 3:00pm Session 5: Earthquake Engineering 3:30pm - 5:30pm Session 6: Risk Management Friday September 2 - Drafting of Resolutions from the Symposium - Excursion Options Walk along Hanore Fault in Kyoto City Active earthquake control in Kyoto Univ. clock tower Sightseeing in Kyoto City Related Points - Oral sessions will have 4 to 6 talks by prominent researchers - Poster Sessions will be open to all contributors - Joint Symposium with AEARU (Association of East Asian Research Universities) - Encourage attendance of students Schedule March 14 First announcements sent to APRU members April 25 Call for Papers July 15 Deadline for Participant Registration August 10 Deadline for Abstract Submissions August 31 to September 2 APRU Research Symposium at Kyoto University We invite you to come to Kyoto to participate in this symposium on a timely subject that is important to many countries around the Pacific Rim.
