“Applications of Research from the U.S. Geological Survey Program, Assessment of Regional Earthquake Hazards and Risk Along the Wasatch Front, Utah” (USGS Professional Paper 1519) is a report that explains how new information about earthquake hazards was applied in Utah. The report, edited by Paula Gori, is now available.
In 1983, the USGS targeted the Wasatch Front, Utah, for a multiyear program that focused on earthquake research and hazards reduction. An earlier report, “Assessment of Regional Earthquake Hazards and Risk Along the Wasatch Front, Utah” (USGS Professional Paper 1500 A-J) contained the results of much of the scientific research undertaken from 1983 to 1988. This new report contains the results of research undertaken during the latter phases of the Wasatch Front Program and presents examples of how the research was applied at the local level.
