Genesis and evolution of soils in the earthquake region is discussed and then reviewed in the light of changes induced by the earthquakes. Those effects of the earthquake that could possibly influence soils are reported on in detail. These include many field observations on the mass movement, the tsunamis, flooding, changes in land elevation and regime of rivers, volcanic eruptions, etc. A catalogue of changes, including land lost to production completes the study.
