AbstractThe December 25, 1989, Moment Magnitude 6.2 Ungava, Quebec, earthquake is one of the largest northern Canadian earthquakes of the 20th century. It occurred in the middle of the Ungava peninsula of Quebec and caused the first documented earthquake surface rupture in Canada east of the Rockies. This Open File Report includes the macroseismic information on this earthquake, including felt report questionnaires. For each locality, the interpreted information is presented in a digital table. The fields include the name, latitude and longitude of the municipality, a short description of the felt effect and the interpreted intensity on the Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) scale. Finally, a GoogleEarth kmz file is added for viewing the felt information reports within a spatial tool.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The December 25, 1989, Moment Magnitude 6.2 Ungava, Quebec, earthquake is one of the largest northern Canadian earthquakes of the 20th century. It occurred in the middle of the Ungava peninsula of Quebec and caused the first documented earthquake surface rupture in Canada east of the Rockies. This Open File Report includes the macroseismic information on this earthquake (including interpreted felt information, images of the surface rupture in the epicentral region, photos of field work). For each locality, the interpreted information is presented in a digital table. The fields include the name, latitude and longitude of the municipality, a short description of the felt effect and the interpreted intensity on the Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) scale. Finally, a GoogleEarth kmz file is added for viewing the felt information reports within a spatial tool.
