A V s30 Map for New Zealand based on surficial geology, topography and direct measurements
(Quake CoRE, 2016)
When designing structures to withstand future earthquakes, the potential damage resulting from a range of hypothetical future earthquake scenarios must be estimated. The influence of local geology on observed ground ...
What caused the spatial variability of strong ground motions near the epicentre of 2016 M7.8 Kaikōura earthquake? The role of the local geologic condition.
During the 2011 M7.8 Kaikōura earthquake, ground motions recorded near the epicentre showed a significant spatial variation. The Te Mara farm (WTMC) station, the nearest to the epicentre, recorded 1g and 2.7g of horizontal ...
A Vs30 Map for New Zealand based on Geology, Topographic Slope and Direct Measurements
Motivation Vs30 (the time-averaged shear wave velocity in the uppermost 30 metres of a given location) is an important engineering parameter used in research and practice. Vs30 is not straightforward or inexpensive to ...
