[1] Special page on the KURIL ISLANDS earthquake of November 15, 2006

We present the special page of the KURIL ISLANDS earthquake of November 15, 2006, where the following information is available:

1) Determination of earthquake magnitudes using duration of high-frequency energy radiation and maximum displacement amplitudes
2) Kuril Tsunami
3) CMT solution determined by Direct Solution Method
4) Earthquakes that caused Tsunami since 1800 around the epicenter

[2] Annual Course Participants have experienced Survival Walk for Disaster Mitigation and Simulated Ground Motion of JMA Intensity VII

Annual course participants (Seismology, Earthquake Engineering and Tsunami subcourses) had a short practice of Survival Walk for Disaster Mitigation at Asakusa, Tokyo in Oct. 16, along the national route 6. This is one of the main evacuation routes assigned by Tokyo Metropolitan Government for the people who works in Tokyo but lives the surrounding area and is expected to return home on foot in case of a severe earthquake disaster. Then, the participants went to Honjo Bosai-Kan and experienced the simulated ground motion of JMA Intensity VII (that corresponds to Modified Mercali Intensity XII) on a shaking table, fire fighting exercise, smoke maze and heavy
windstorm. These activities belong to the lecture entitled "Dissemination for Earthquake Disaster Mitigation" for the annual course.

[3] "RESPONSE CONTROL AND SEISMIC ISOLATION OF BUILDINGS" by Dr. Saito

CIB/TG44 Book, "RESPONSE CONTROL AND SEISMIC ISOLATION OF BUILDINGS" has been
released since September 8, 2006 from Taylor & Francis. http://www.taylorandfrancis.com/
This book summarized state of the art of worldwide practice of response control and seismic isolation of buildings in China, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan, and the United States of
America. I, Dr. Taiki Saito, am an author of Chapter 1 and 4 of this book. You can search this book on http://www.amazon.com.
