Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program [NEHRP]. "Earthquake risk reduction efforts are, metaphorically, all about bridge building and boundary breaking. NEHRP operates not only across multiple agencies, but also across multiple environments (natural, built, social), disciplines (earth sciences, engineering, social sciences), and interests (e.g., research, policy making, hazard mitigation, disaster response). The bridge that is the most fundamental to NEHRP is that between research and practice, mediated by public- and private-sector policy making. The Natural Hazards Center (NHC), located at the University of Colorado at Boulder, has for many years played a unique and critically important role in strengthening and sustaining this bridge for NEHRP."
