on earthquake risk for nuclear power plants PROCEEDINGS OF THE E. S. C. SYMPOSIUM IN LUXEMBOURG ON 20 - 22 OCTOBER 1975 K.N.M.I. EDITED BY A. R. RITSEMA de bilt - january 1976 preface One of the tasks of the Geopb7sical Division of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute is to give advice in matters of seismicity. In the present era of design and construction of nuclear power plants. risk evaluation and analysis for earthquakes has become more necessary than ever. In the Netherlands this has lead to a more detailed study of local seismicity. and to the initiation of a close co~operation with seismic experts of neighbouring countries to remove some of the existing ambiguities in seismic zoning at the mutual national borders. The study of seismic risks. especially in the absence of long series of seismic observations, is a problem common to many European countries. This was also reflected in the Symposium on Earthquake risk for nuclear power plants • held in Luxemburg on October 20-22, 1975, under auspices of the European Seismological Commission. The present Volume of the Publication Series of the Institute contains the Proceedings of this Symposium. It is supposed to give the work done locally an essential and wider perspective on European scale. Apart from our own interest in the matter, it is hoped that many colleagues from other countries in and outside Europe will profit from this publication. The Proceedings are edited by Dr. A.R. Ritsema, convener of the Symposium, with the special aid, advice and assistence of Miss J.H.W.M. Vermeulen, P.A.S. Doets, G. Houtgast and J.J. Wittebol, all members of the Institute. The former Director in Chief, Dr. M.W.F. Schregardus. actively promoted the publication. The fact that the authors delivered in time print-ready manuscripts made publication possible within three months of the Symposium.
