    The economy of Chile is a high-income economy as ranked by the World Bank, and is considered one of South America's most prosperous nations, leading Latin American nations in competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption. Although Chile has high economic inequality, as measured by the Gini index, it is close to the regional mean. Just for context, the March 3 eruption of Villarrica was small (10 million cubic metres of ash, or magnitude 3 on the y axis), with a composition represented by an orange colour (so a bit like the Mocho eruptions around 4, years ago); while the April 22 eruption of Calbuco was moderate ( million cubic metres of ash, or magnitude on.

    The M w = earthquake in Chile subjected thousands of modern buildings to strong shaking. The story, residential, Torre Alto Rio building was the only modern reinforced concrete building over ten stories to collapse. Since the concrete building code used in Chile is based on ACI , it is a valuable exercise to assess the performance of this building and to identify possible. Sandwell, D. T., and K. A.

As the events listed here occurred before routine instrumental recordings, they rely mainly on the analysis of written sources.

There is often significant uncertainty in location and magnitude and sometimes date for each earthquake. The Iquique earthquake was preceded by large earthquakes in, and in Northern Chile (Comte and Pardo, ).The Illapel earthquake occurred in a well-studied area where large events occurred inand (Beck et al., ).This quasi periodic sequence is reminiscent of the Parfield region in Central California where the most recent event.

A Mw earthquake event occurred on 15 August off the coast of central Peru, 60 km west of the city of Pisco. This event is associated with subduction processes at the interface of the Nazca and South American plates, and was characterised by a complex source mechanism involving rupture on two main asperities, with unilateral rupture propagation to the southeast.

InSAR data and aftershock seismicity provide a means to locate the faults and estimate source parameters for these events. An earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth's lithosphere that creates seismic uakes can range in size from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to propel objects and people into the air, and wreak destruction across entire cities.
