Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This map is one the three maps documenting the seismic microzonation of the Quebec City region. The object of seismic microzonation is to show on a map geophysical or geotechnical properties of the subsurface relevant to seismic hazard assessment. This interpretative map shows the areal distribution of terrain classes, noted A to F, as defined in the National Building Code of Canada (NBC 2005, 2010). According to the NBC, earthquake shaking increases in a general manner from class A (hard rocks) to class E (soft deposits). Terrains of class F, which corresponds to problematic soils like liquefiable sands, are not shown on the map although it is known that such soils are present in some areas. The scale of the map (1/50,000) and the type of data considered in the analysis are not adapted to an accurate determination of zones of class F terrains. This map is aimed mainly at the engineering services of Quebec City, l'Ancienne-Lorette, and Wendake.
