GeoNet Strong Motion Data Products

This is a collection of processed strong motion data using the national strong motion network of New Zealand. The products are available for earthquakes at magnitude 4.0 or higher. The strong motion stations are in major centers of population, near significant faults and in various building structures. Seismic sensors deployed in these stations can record significant ground shaking, typically associated with damaging earthquakes. GeoNet’s strong motion data products include processed time series, response spectra, Fourier spectra and summary of peak ground motions. Cite as: GNS Science (2020).
