GROUND SHAKING HAZARD, AN IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION IN LAND-USE PLANNING

This paper presents empirical data recorded in the Glendale, California, area from the 1971 San Fernando earthquake and aftershock sequence. These data depict the relative ground shaking in the Glendale area and provide information that can be used in the land-use planning process. An eleven-station seismic array of L-7 velocity seismographs was deployed following the earthquake. All of the seismographs in the array, except two, Griffith Park Observatory and Brand Park fire road, were located on alluvium of varying thickness.
