Description

Detailed crustal velocity structure models were developed for sources located in the Grenville and Appalachian provinces. The former consists of a single gradient in the crust, and was constrained by modeling S waves generated by explosions from a crustal refraction experiment.

Detailed crustal velocity structure models were developed for sources located in the Grenville and Appalachian provinces. The latter contains a mid-crustal discontinuity and a deep Moho, and was developed by modeling P and S travel times and amplitudes from three earthquakes at two depths.

Ground shaking due to earthquakes in the eastern United States (EUS) is felt at significantly greater distances than in the western United States (WUS) and for some earthquakes it has been shown to display a strong preferential direction

Ground shaking due to earthquakes in the eastern United States (EUS) is felt at significantly greater distances than in the western United States (WUS) and for some earthquakes it has been shown to display a strong preferential direction. Shaking intensity variation can be due to propagation path effects, source directivity, and/or site amplification.

We validate and improve 1D velocity models of the two main crustal provinces in the northeastern United States (NEUS), using seismograms from the 20 April 2002 M 5 Au Sable Forks earthquake, which is the largest earthquake in the region to be recorded by multiple, recently deployed, good-quality, regional broad-band stations.

The Canadian National Seismograph Network Station Book contains information about the type of data .

The Canadian National Seismograph Network Station Book contains information about the type of data produced by CNSN stations as well as associated information such as instrumentation, channels recorded, sample rates, sensitivities, and dates of operation necessary to make the data useful to the broadest range of people. Increasingly, regional seismographic systems are developing alongside national networks; examples are the system in northern Greece, and the roughly 1000 seismographic stations in California that look for early warning signs of earthquake activity.

Barbaro and Dorothy Frank, who typed the manuscript. A study of the crustal structure using air-gun and earthquake data in subarea D can provide us with a detailed velocity model from shallow to deeper crust that permits us to study the crustal deformation associated with the transition from subduction to collision. The earthquake data used in this study are P- and S-wave arrivals of local earthquakes recorded in real time by the CWBSN.

modification of records to analyze computer models of buildings, bridges .

Since its release, the PEER Ground Motion database has proved to be very popular among engineers in the earthquake-related disciplines, who are increasingly using it for selection and modification of records to analyze computer models of buildings, bridges, and other facilities. The database is now cited as a primary source of ground motion records in the latest revision of the Building Seismic Safety Councils NEHRP Recommended Provisions.

Networks of seismographs continuously record ground motions around . Earthquake Data in Engineering Seismology: Predictive Models, Data Management and Networks

Networks of seismographs continuously record ground motions around the world to facilitate the monitoring and analysis of global earthquakes and other sources of seismic activity. A major long-term motivation for the global seismographic monitoring has been for the detection and study of nuclear testing. Mapping the earth's interior. Main article: Earth's interior.
