Abstract: Seismic zones were developed for southeastern New England based on geological and geophysical data and on historic seismicity. Each zone was assigned a floating maximum earthquake and earthquake motions were attenuated from their sources to the site. The site was found to be subject to a local earthquake (acceleration 0.16 g, velocity 13 cm/sec , and duration ≥ 0.05 g of 4 sec) and a Cape Ann earthquake (acceleration 0.13 g, velocity 13 cm/sec, and duration ≥ 0.05 g of 4 sec). Accelerograms and response spectra appropriate to these values were selected.
