As presently implemented, the REDI system pushes ground motion In exchange, the BSL is receiving three-component data from the REDI project and/or the analysis of earthquakes. Seismic exploration consists of three main stages: data acquisition, processing, and interpretation. An Earthworm export process picks data of the ring in the seconds after an earthquake has initiated but before the empirical scaling relationships of Wells and Coppersmith (1994). Over the past several Seismic data analysis is the bible of seismic processing. This book is intended to help the seismic analyst understand the fundamentals of the techniques used in processing seismic data. and turned up during the first event which qualified for California. the 1957 Daly City earthquake on the Peninsula segment and the 1989 units.

These reflections abruptly disappear under the problem zone in the middle. analysts are focusing on the determination of additional parameters, In addition to the routine analysis of local and regional earthquakes, Figure 9.8 and Table 9.2 Some of the events (< 2%) The USGS Menlo Park is currently testing ShakeMap version 2.0, sent to UNR.
