Assessment of Regional Earthquake Hazards and Risk Along the Wasatch Front, Utah
After more than a century of research, geologists and other scientists have increased their understanding of the tectonic processes at work in the Wasatch Front and are now beginning to answer the questions about the seismicity and tectonics of the Wasatch Front that Gilbert and others first posed Scientists, engineers, architects, urban planners, and emergency managers are not waiting for a major earthquake disaster to learn that measures must be implemented to mitigate an earthquake's effects. They are taking actions now to prepare for and to mitigate the physical effects of such an earthquake.
