The reconnaissance was a combined effort of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) - Learning From Earthquakes, and the Geo-Engineering Earthquake Reconnaissance (GEER) activity of National Science Foundation (NSF).

EERI and GEER dispatched the first reconnaissance team to Niigata, Japan, within three days of the earthquake.

The EERI-GEER team was led by Robert Kayen of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and composed of Scott Ashford, Steve Dickenson, and Yohsuke Kawamata from the Department of Civil Engineering at the Oregon State University; Brian Collins at the USGS; and Scott Brandenburg of the University of California at Los Angeles.

EERI supported the reconnaissance of structural engineer Santiago Pujol (co-leader) of Purdue University. The EERI team also included Laurie Johnson (Kyoto University), Yousok Kim (University of Tokyo), Toshimi Kabeyasawa (University of Tokyo), Nanako Marubashi (Nagoya Institute of Technology), Kahji Tokimatsu (Tokyo Institute of Technology), Peter Yanev, and Mark Yashinsky (California Dept. of Transportation). The EERI-GEER team was joined by international GEER members Prof. Yasuo Tanaka and graduate student Hidetaka Koumoto of Kobe University. Norm Abrahamson synthesized the seismological information about the event. Publications - NII07JP Web-based report is available on line at: http://www.eeri.org
