Measurement of shallow shear wave velocities at a rock site using the ReMi technique
Shallow shear wave velocities beneath a rock site are characterized using the refraction microtremor (ReMi) technique developed by Louie [Faster, better: shear-wave velocity to 100 m depth from ReMi arrays. Bull Seism Soc ...
A Shallow Shear-Wave Velocity Transect across the Reno, Nevada, Area Basin
In October and November 2001, we performed an urban shear-wave velocity transect across 16 km of the Reno, Nevada, area basin. Using the refraction microtremor method of Louie (2001) we determined shear-wave velocity versus ...
Characterization of Near-Surface Geology at Strong-Motion Stations in the Vicinity of Reno, Nevada
We evaluate site conditions at each of the 21 Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) strong-motion stations in the Reno–Sparks, Nevada, area. Shallow shear-wave velocities are measured using the refraction microtremor ...
Validating Nevada ShakeZoning Predictions of Las Vegas Basin Response against 1992 Little Skull Mountain Earthquake Records
Over the last two years, the Nevada Seismological Laboratory has developed and refined Nevada ShakeZoning (NSZ) procedures to characterize earthquake hazards in the Intermountain West. Simulating the ML 5.6–5.8 Little Skull ...
