1   Link   Ontario-geofish Blog
The blog of Harold W. Asmis, a retired geophysicist and engineer from the Ontario Power Generation Company. His career experience includes tunnel analysis, regional geologic mapping, and earthquake engineering in support of nuclear power plant citing. He also initiated the Southern Ontario Seismic Network. He blogs a great deal about rock mechanics, earthquake preparedness and the nuclear industry (mostly Canada, but also the U.S.). His political views can be strong, but his writing style is generally amusing.

The Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Portal intends to provide useful resources on geotechnical earthquake engineering.
3   Link   GEER: Geo-Engineering Extreme Events Reconnaissance
Extreme events engineering is an experience-driven field. Immediately following the occurrence of an extreme event (e.g., earthquake, tsunami, hurricane, landslide, or flood), perishable data that can be used to advance our understanding should be systemically collected. The importance of detailed mapping and surveying of damaged areas relative to general damage surveys cannot be overemphasized, as they provide the hard data of the well-documented case histories that drive the development of many of the empirical procedures used in geoengineering practice. The GEER Association is working to develop a systematic approach to conducting the NSF-sponsored reconnaissance efforts of the the geotechnical effects of extreme events. The project is formalizing the manner in which extreme events reconnaissance efforts are organized by the GeoPrograms of NSF.
