Abstract
This volume presents strong motion data from three earthquakes in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. One accelerograph was triggered by the mb= 4.2 June 13, 1975 event, seven were triggered by an mb= 5.0 event on March 25, 1976, and one was triggered by an mb= 4.5 aftershock on March 25, 1976. The strong motion data were processed using the computer programs developed at CALTECH. The raw digitized accelerograms, as well as the calculated ground acceleration, velocity and displacements are presented in tabular and graphic form. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
