ABSTRACT

Guatemalan Earthquake of February 4, 1976, A Preliminary Report   [open pdf - 24MB]

"The information compiled in this study will be useful in assessing and delineating earthquake hazards in Guatemala to reduce the potential for loss of life and property in future earthquakes. The information in this study is also important in evaluating the effects to be expected from large strike-slip earthquakes elsewhere, such as those that occur in coastal California. A more detailed study of the distribution of intensities in Guatemala City could provide the basis for delineating variations in the hazards due to ground shaking and ground failure throughout the city and could assist in developing land-use policies."
