 Project Description

This project will investigate the impact of earthquake awareness programmes on the actions of people during the shaking phase of an earthquake, and the subsequent impact this has on survivability.  Research will focus on people’s actions and whether this was influenced by the information they had previously received, and if that education was appropriate for their experience by analysing survivability data.
