Importance of damage data from destructive earthquakes forseismic microzoning Damage distribution during the 1923 Kanto, Japan, earthquake

S. Midorikawa


To verify the results of seismic microzoning and to improve techniques, the damage data of past destructive earthquakes is an important key reference. The damage data of the 1923 Kanto, Japan, earthquake in the epicentral region are collected and compiled to produce the most reliable and detailed damage map. The damage map is compared with the results from the existing damage assessment and is used to discuss revision of the site amplification evaluation.
