AbstractA program to install strong motion seismographs in the active seismic regions in western Canada was initiated in 1961. A total of 14 accelerographs and 48 seismoscopes are now installed along the coast of British Columbia. The seismoscopes and eight of the accelerographs are instruments of United States Coast and Geodetic Survey design manufactured in Canada. The remaining six accelerographs have been purchased in the United States. The strong motion instruments are distributed in buildings on varied geological and local soil formations in a program to determine ground motion and its variation with soil type in the vicinity of earthquake
epicentres.
