Scope and content

English transcription: At the request of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, UNESCO is sending missions of experts to the seismic belts of the world to study the existing state of seismological observations and mapping of seismic activity and the extent to which the possibility of earthquake damage is taken into account in the construction of building and civil engineering works. The first of these missions visited South East Asia during May to July 1961. Here, members of the mission study seismograms at the seismological station at Kaliurang, Centra Java (No. 22.689 shows, in the background, the Merapi Volcano which had erupted on May 9, 1961).
