A clearinghouse for managing and disseminating scientific and engineering information during emergency operations has been successfully used after several recent earthquakes in California. The clearinghouse has been used to coordinate the activities of geologists and engineers conducting reconnaissance for post-earthquake investigations. Observations that may be important for officials managing response and recovery operations are summarized and conveyed to them.
