Earthquake Impacts on the Natural and Built Environment

In this session, we invite presentations on earthquake effects and their
impacts. This includes models of landslides, liquefaction, lateral
spreading, surface fault rupture, building damage, and
infrastructure/lifeline performance, as well as broader multi-hazard impact
analyses. We encourage submissions on empirical and analytical models,
sensitivity analyses, data analyses, and scenario exercises. Given the
challenges of linking secondary effects and their impacts to simplified
shaking parameters, we also encourage submissions on innovative
parameterizations of ground motion shaking intensity to account for
cumulative energy, frequency content, and duration effects. Similarly, we
hope to include recent developments on proxies for predicting the
likelihood and the spatial distribution of earthquake ground failure
