Technical report
Earthquake ground motion has been observed to be altered by the various types of soils encountered along the path of energy propagation. Changes occur die to the different soil layers, the depth of the soil layer to bedrock, irregularities within a soil layer, different densities, shear wave velocities, and natural periods of soil. Furthermore, the effect of the local soil on the ground motion will depend on the strength for the initial energy release, its frequency characteristics and its duration.
