California gets into Microzonation


This is interesting. They have introduced a new map a the AGU that combines soil types with the general seismic hazard. People have been working on microzonation for years, but this is the first time I have seen a major product. Note how the swamps (bay mud) are bright pink.

If we did this for Hamilton, it would be surprising.
