The UK-based Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) last week presented their findings in London, from their field investigation of earthquake and tsunami impacts in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. The team was in the field at the end of May / beginning of June.

The recorded presentation is available at:


Observations presented include ground motion observations, geotechnical aspects, structural damage from both ground shaking and  tsunami, performance of coastal defences, impact of the event on the nuclear sector, and aspects of the disaster response and recovery.

The corresponding field report will be published in due course on the reports page of the same website, where previous field reports can also be viewed: http://www.istructe.org/knowledge/EEFIT/Pages/reports.aspx
