It is important to make decisions about building codes required so buildings can be built to resist movements that soils will present when earthquakes of magnitude above 4.0 may occur exceeding critical values of peak ground acceleration (PGA) at building sites.
You will find information about:
(i) earthquake records that has been detected by Puerto Rico Strong Motion Program since 1998.
(ii) Stations and instruments description, as well as characteristics of the local geological conditions at the recording sites.
