Earthquake Clearinghouse


Great site for strong ground motion reports.  I won't trust anything from this last earthquake because of the soft soils, but the Chile report is interesting.

Santiago gives complex signals, so I suspect there is a strong basin effect.

When you integrate you get displacement, which I would use as an input for my dynamic model.

This is still rather messy.  Cleaner signals are obtained closer to the source.

These were at a PGV of about 50 cm/s

I like this one, it is very polarized and clean.

I am now cutting myself off from NZ, since it is very sad, and there is nothing to be learned here.
