A Long-Term Perspective

  • Gerald T. Hebenstreit
Part of the Advances in Natural and Technological Hazards Research book series (NTHR, volume 9)


The thirteen preceding papers in this volume were presented at the Seventeenth International Tsunami Symposium held by the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) Tsunami Commission in July 1995 in Boulder, Colorado. The Symposium was part of the XXI General Assembly of the IUGG and was sponsored in part by the International Association of Seismology and the Physics of the Earth’s Interior (IASPEI) and in part by the Union.
