Day 5: Group 1 environmental survey


Domenico, Joanna and Zoe first visited the town of Amatrice to see the damage directly, assisted by the Vigili Dei Fuoco. Following their visit, they began to observe and record environmental effects around Amatrice, such as landslides and rockfalls. These observations can be used to determine the intensity of the shaking using the Environmental Seismic Intensity Scale, which is designed to be complimentary to the Modified Mercalli Scale for investigating building damage. Domenico and Zoe will be continuing to record environmental effects for the next couple of days.
