Invited Speaker at Earthquake Conference

Robert Bauer was an invited speaker at the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute's workshop on developing new guidelines for earthquake scenarios. The workshop was held in San Francisco, California, on September 17 and 18, 2008. Bauer summarized individual state and multi-state scenarios that have been developed since 1990 for earthquake exercises and earthquake loss estimation projects that have and are currently under way in the central United States. The 75 workshop participants developed lists of items for the new guidelines through group discussions. Work will continue on a new guidelines document that will be published by the Institute.
