Abstract: Damage observed during the Kutch earthquake of 26th January 2001 is classified according to the type of structure. This damage pattern has been used to draw the isoseismal map on the basis of the intensity scale given in IS 1893-2002 which covers only traditional one to two storey houses. Having thus estimated intensities, and observed damage to other types of structures, a new criterion was adopted which is included in this paper. Areas that showed maximum damage to structures have been assigned maximum intensity X.

Funding Details: cially supported by the Delhi College of Engineering, Delhi for eld visits. The authors were highly bene ted by critical comments and discussions with Professors D K Paul, V H Joshi, Ashwani Kumar and H R Wason, and Drs. M L Sharma and J P Narayan, all from the Department of Earthquake Engineering, IIT Roorkee. The timely help rendered by Dr. A Gopalan, Director, Dr. S B Sharma, Dr. R P Prajapati, Sri Sanjeev Kulshretra and Sri Randhir Sethi of Space Application Centre, Ahmedabad, for providing the GPS and satellite data, is gratefully acknowledged. Personal discussions with Dr. S K Biswas, Sri James Peters and Sri Bhoj from ONGC, Dehradun, were of immense help in correlating eld observations of damage with tectonics of the area.
