On Friday, March 11, 2011, an M9.0 earthquake near the coast of Northern Japan triggered a devastating tsunami that led to a nuclear radiation disaster. The scale of this disaster required a critical reassessment of key assumptions in earthquake hazard, risk and disaster mitigation in Japan.
On this 10th anniversary, we must remember the lives lost and the communities still impacted today. It is time to be retrospective and respectful. It is also time to acknowledge key learn lessons to ensure we become more resilient for future disasters.
In this Retrospective session, RMS Experts will discuss key lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami disaster, and how they impact the assessment of future potential earthquakes in Japan and around the World.
