Catalogues of Strong-motion Records

The U.S. Geological Survey National Strong-Motion Program routinely publishes summaries of the accelerograms recovered from the National Strong-Motion Network and cooperating agencies strong-motion accelerograph stations. Each catalogue includes earthquake information, recording station, instrument azimuth, and maximum recorded acceleration. From 1974-1980 these reports were issued quarterly and titled "Seismic Engineering Program Reports". Beginning in 1981, the reporting period switched to an annual cycle. From 1981 to 1985 the reports were called "Strong-Motion Program Report, January-December [year]"; since 1986 the title has been "Catalogue of U.S. Geological Survey Strong-Motion Records, [year]".
