Abstract:

The study upon which this report is based had three basic goals To review critically the status and role of seismology in the modern world to attempt an imaginative forecast, tempered with caution and reason, of the role of seismology in the society of the future and to recommend action aimed at developing the technical capability in seismology required to meet current and future needs. The report presents six general recommendations in response to the third goal. There is special emphasis on the university-government sphere and on the branch of seismology devoted to the earthquake phenomenon, for it is here that the Committees efforts would appear to be most useful.
