The Western States Seismic Policy Council (WSSPC) and the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) hosted the Basin and Range Province (BRP) Seismic-Hazards Summit in Reno, Nevada, May 13-15, 1997, to review important technical issues in characterizing seismic hazards in the BRP and consider their public-policy implications. The purpose of the summit, and of the WSSPC BRP committee, is to accurately and effectively characterize seismic hazards in the province and identify policies and means of communication that will effectively reduce the loss of life and property. This publication presents a number of papers presented at the conference.
