Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Since 2013, the GSC has undertaken a range of activities to improve the assessment of geohazards (specifically earthquakes, tsunamis, and landslides) in British Columbia¿s North Coast region as part of the World-Class Tanker Safety Initiative. This initiative includes targeted mapping, monitoring, and modelling of selected marine and terrestrial coastal geohazards in and around the district of Kitimat, BC. To better predict earthquake-induced ground motions in Kitimat, a three-phased study of the unconsolidated sediments filling the Kitimat Valley was initiated in 2014. This report contains the geophysical data (seismic reflection, passive microtremor recordings, borehole geophysical logs) collected as part of Phase 1 & 2 of the Kitimat site response study. The report also contains recordings from a MW 4.6 earthquake which occurred 275 km offshore while seismographs on soil and rock were recording in March of 2014.
