ABSTRACT

ANSS-Reducing the Devastating Effects of Earthquakes   [open pdf - 8MB]

"In light of a dramatic national increase in monetary losses from earthquakes in the last two decades, the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) is being designed to integrate, modernize, standardize, and expand operations of seismic networks in the United States. The ANSS will improve ground and structural recordings of strong earthquake shaking in urban areas, providing the data necessary to improve structural safety and speed emergency response and recovery. This will improve the Nation's ability to respond effectively to damaging earthquakes, reduce monetary losses, and save lives."
