Advancing hazard-resistant design demands an understanding of what happens when a disaster occurs.  Documenting and sharing the key lessons learned from extreme events around the world contributes significantly to advancing research and practice in hazards engineering.  Unanticipated observations from major events often define new research directions.  As an example, the recent studies of the liquefaction of fine-grained soil have been largely motivated by observations. In post-earthquake reconnaissance efforts.
