EARTHQUAKE LIQUEFACTION --
Earthquake Paleoliquefaction Sites, 1996 (1:24,000)
Shows paleoliquefaction features that were caused by strong-motion earthquakes
having energies equivalent to Mb 5.0 or greater. This layer shows sites where
paleoliquefaction features have been identified in the field. Ages of the features
were determined by radiocarbon dating, dating of associated archaeological artifacts,
and floodplain stratigraphy.
Data were derived from a database that appears as an appendix in a project report
for the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (U.S. Geological Survey),
Grant No. 14-08-0001-G2117.
