Urban Seismology in Megacities: the Los Angeles BASIN Experiment

Dr. Patricia Persaud from Louisiana State University gave this talk in a recent IRIS webinar. “Our goal is to first map the structure of the basins in the Los Angeles area, and to integrate the basins’ structure into computer simulations of ground motion. As part of the BASIN project, we have deployed 744 nodal seismometers along 10 densely-spaced seismic profiles in the greater Los Angeles area.”
