In 2005 we were interested in a multi-national inter-modal port near the Chile-Peru border with an eye toward alleviating Bolivia's economic hurdles due to being landlocked.
In late 2006 we provided lengthy Microsoft Word documents in English and Spanish (Aymara and Quechua translations were beyond our reach) and did three separate
presentations for diplomatic staffs. Among our concerns was the economic damage were a powerful marine earthquake with tsunamis to
occur. The 2007 Pisco earthquake measured 8.0 on the moment magnitude scale. It hit the central coast of Peru on Wednesday August
15, 2007 at 23:40:58 UTC (18:40 local time). The epicenter was located at 150 kilometers (93 mi)
south-southeast of Lima at a depth of 39 kilometers (24.2 miles).
This screenshot from our SAOLA application was an attempt to calculate (in this case for Chile) the worst possible epicenter for a seismic event. We eventually cut the material as too mathematical.
