How did engineers combine field and remote earthquake mission strategies to assess the damage?

This lecture recording summarises the work of the EEFIT mission to the Aegean earthquake. The seismic event, which hit the Turkish and Greek coastline on 30 October 2020, also caused a tsunami. The mission brought together field and remote mission strategies. It explored ways to maximise efficacy in data collection to capture the event characteristics and response due to both hazards.
