The phenomenon of liquefaction has been extensively studied, yet, the prediction of field performance remains uncertain. The first part of this manuscript presents a detailed analysis of published results to identify robust strength criteria. The second part documents experimental data on the characterization of liquefaction events with P-wave reflection imaging and S-wave transillumination techniques. The relevance of multiple coexisting temporal and spatial scales is highlighted.
