Abstract: This Geotechincal Special Publication contains the papers presented by the invited speakers in the sessions on Spatial Analysis in Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering held during the First National Conference of the ASCE Geo-Institute. The conference was hosted by Utah State University in Logan, Utah from July 16 to 19, 1997. Topics presented in the sessions included seismic hazard analysis in research and practice, regional versus site specific analysis methods, spatial data quality evaluation, spatial ground motion amplification, spatial liquefaction analysis, zonation of seismic slope instability, multi-hazard spatial analysis and spatial assessment of seismic induced lifeline damage. This document provides the engineer, geologist, seismologist, planner or risk manager with a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective of the opinions of selected researchers and practitioners from academia, government and industry on the use of spatial analysis techniques for evaluating earthquake hazards and consequences.
