The report describes the geological sequence of events which led to the earthquake, including the tectonic setting and local and active faulting. The geotechnical failures incorporate details of liquefaction and landslides.
In relation to structural effects, the report includes:
- Seismic hazard considerations in the local building code
- Building performance
- Infrastructure performance
- Socio-economic and community vulnerability
An accompanying blog was produced by the mission team during deployment.
