Media Briefing and Webcast
Nov. 15, 2004

From the Pacific coast to our nation's interior, more than 75 million Americans in 39 states live in towns and cities at risk for earthquake devastation. While scientists are digging into the origins of seismic waves, engineers are pushing the boundaries of design to create structures that remain safe when an earthquake ultimately surfaces. On Nov. 15, 2004, the National Science Foundation hosted the grand opening of a research network that addresses this important design need--the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES).
