Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. "Through its participation in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) promotes the dissemination and use of the latest advances in earthquake hazard mitigation and risk reduction. These advances are brought about through basic and applied research and through consensus-building efforts undertaken or supported by the NEHRP agencies and their many partners in the public and private sectors. The FEMA-NEHRP publications program is a key element of FEMA's dissemination and implementation activities. Over the past 30 years, this program has produced and distributed, in cooperation with a number of publishing partners, more than 170 authoritative publications aimed at reducing earthquake casualties and losses in the United States."
