      Apr 19,  · In this April 18, file photo, the Hibernia Bank building is in ruins following the massive earthquake that devastated the San Francisco area that was caused by a . Among them are Southern California and the San Francisco Bay area, the Pacific Northwest, Nevada, the Wasatch Front in Utah, the New Madrid seismic zone in the Central Mississippi Valley, Charleston, South Carolina, the Northeast, and the Puerto RicoVirgin Islands region. Progress in seismic zonation can be accelerated through international.

      The new San Francisco Seismic Ordinance targets the multifamily housing inventory. The City has a goal of improving the seismic resiliency of the multifamily apartment housing inventory to ensure the residents will have a home to shelter should a significant earthquake affect the Bay Area in the coming years. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) conducted the Contractor's Information Session for contractors, fabricators, and suppliers to provide information about the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge East Span Seismic Safety Project area and the construction methodology. The project will be divided into multiple contracts.

Summer, This map shows the relative intensity of ground shaking and damage in the San Francisco Bay Region from anticipated future eart hquakes.

The analyses presented in the preceding six papers show that the geologic setting of the San Francisco Bay region has a dominant influence on potential earthquake hazards.

The strong correlation between geologic conditions and the amount of earthquake damage in emphasizes the importance of this influence and demonstrates the need for seismic zonation.

Dec 06,  · Seismic velocities of various units often show a strong correlation with the amounts of damage following large earthquakes and have been used as a basis for certain types of seismic zonation studies.

Currently a program is in progress to measure seismic velocities in the San Francisco Bay region at an estimated sites. Studies by Kockelman (,) on the use of earth-science information by city, county, and regional planners and decision-makers in the San Francisco Bay region of the United States show that the most effective use of hazard information is achieved when maps clearly depict the likelihood of occurrence, location, and severity.
