A new year is upon us, and Woody looks to the future. It’s been four years since magnitude-7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, and only 10 days since a magnitude-6.4 earthquake occurred about 40km north of Puerto Rico. Both areas have notable seismic activity, but both were caught unprepared. How at-risk is Japan for another massive earthquake? How accurate are our estimates? Are we prepared?
Woody is best known for his risk assessment software, Riskman ®, and his work on the risk assessment of the Abandoned Chemical Weapons in China.
