HAZARDS
1.
GROUND
SHAKING - Is both a hazard created by earthquakes
and the trigger for other hazards such as
liquefaction and landslides
2.
Ground
rupture - is the visible offset of the ground surface
when an earthquake rupture along a fault
affects the Earth's surface.
3.
liquefaction
- occurs when a saturated or partially saturated
soil substantially loses strength and stiffness
4.earthquak
e-induced
ground
subsidence - occurs when large amounts of
groundwater have been withdrawn from
certain types of rocks, such as fine-grained
sediments.
5.
Tsunami
-is a series of waves caused by earthquakes
or undersea volcanic eruptions.
6.
Earthquake
– induced
landslide -cause a slope to become unstable by the
inertial loading it imposes or by causing a
loss of strength in the slope materials.
