In this paper, it is a brief summary for the field survey on the 27 February, 2010 Malue mega-earthquake, Chile by a Chinese scientist team. This mission is to investigate the reason why such a great earthquake caused less causalities, less loss compared with Chinese Wenchuan and Yushu earthquake. This survey was sponsored by China Earthquake Administration and this paper focused on the strong motion data analysis, some building damage observation and tsunami. We gave a preliminary analysis for the strong motions characteristic and some typical building damage. The understanding of this great earthquake could be improved our knowledge for advancing societal resilience.
