Title: Collaborative USGS-NEES Earthquake Hazard Studies in the Reno-Carson City Urban Corridor, Nevada (NEES-2010-0870)
Year Of Curation: 2013
Description: The overall goal of this experiment is to provide high-resolution images of the sediment structure in the Truckee Meadows Basin and vicinity (Reno-Carson City, Nevada, June 2009). The Reno-Carson City work will provide key constraints on earthquake hazard assessments in this large, at-risk area and lead to improved earthquake ground motion simulations that earthquake engineers could use to assess potential losses.
