[10] Our very simple dynamic model of the Kobe earth-quake produces kinematic motions on the fault consistent Figure 1. The earthquake caused approximately ten trillion yen or $102.5 billion in damage, 2.5% of Japan's GDP at the time. Directed by Dan Gold. Terremoto en kobe/Terremoto em Kobe/Earthquake in Kobe Murilo Lorentz. The 1995 Kobe, Japan, earthquake caused thousands of fatalities and billions of dollars in damage because it was a great, M8.9 earthquake: false The 26 December, 2004, Sumatra M9.3 earthquake had a rupture length of about _______ km and the maximum slip on the fault was about _____ m: The earthquake caused two major changes in Japanese society: an increase in voluntary and non‐government activities, and the enhancement of cooperation between local government and the residents' association. What makes an earthquake "significant"? ... Earthquake in Japan ( 1 of 2 , 1978-2004) - Duration: 9:58. Nine years after the Kobe earthquake in Japan, social issues are still prominent, and the rehabilitation process is still ongoing. 1. Events in this list and shown in red on our real-time earthquake map and list are considered “significant events’, and they are determined by a combination of magnitude, number of Did You Feel It responses, and PAGER alert level. With Makoto Fujii, Charles Scawthorn, Ashton Smith. There was a magnitude 6.9 earthquake up in the hilly area of Niigata. Most of the losses were uninsured, as only 3% of property in the Kobe area was covered by earthquake insurance, compared to 16% in Tokyo. Many earthquake-resistant structure were destroyed by recent earthquakes, such as the Kobe Earthquake(1995) in Japan, the Kocaeli Earthquake(1999) in Turkey, Niigataken-Chuetu Earthquake(2004) in Japan and so on.. Loading... Unsubscribe from Murilo Lorentz? The reliability of structures during earthquakes must be checked again using rational design methods. Although the city had been build to withstand a much stronger earthquake over 6000 people lost their lives, mainly … The top photo in this composite shows the aftermath of an earthquake-triggered tsunami that hit Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province, Indonesia, in December 2004. 2Association for the Development of Earthquake Prediction, Tokyo 101-0064, Japan (Received October 18, 2003; Revised July 26, 2004; Accepted July 28, 2004) After the disastrous 1995 Kobe earthquake, a new national project has started to drastically improve seismic observation system in Japan. US$44 billion loss, although only seventy-two dead), the 1995 Kobe, Japan earthquake (M6.8, $100 billion, 6,434 dead), the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and tsunami (M9.3, damage It shows the Kobe earthquake was a right-lateral strike slip event on a Introduction [2] The 16 January 1995 Kobe earthquake (Mw 6.9) occurred near the city of Kobe in western Japan, causing a tremendous amount of damage and the loss of many lives. The next test for Japan’s emergency response system following the Kobe earthquake actually came in October 2004. On January 17th 1995 Kobe was hit by a 7.2 earthquake.
