To provide a general view of liquefaction, some of the larger earthquakes occurring in the alluvial plains of Japan are discussed as case history studies. Among the subjects discussed are the sand deposits in the lowland areas, and the damage directly associated with the liquefaction of this loose sand deposits, the upward movement of underground structures such as storage tanks, sewage conduits and septic tanks, the volcanic ejection of water and sand, and the like also discussed are structural damages to modern bridges, and the importance of the study of liquefaction as a potential hazard, especially sandy areas.
