Microzonation in the seismic area of Corinth-Loutraki

Abstract


The spotty distribution of intense damage during the 1928 earthquake,
in structures of the same type strongly indicates that local subsoil
conditions in the area were one of the governing factors in the
assesment of damage to structures. The microzoning map of Corinth and
Loutraki has been compiled using the microtremor method and it is
in a rather good agreement with detailed information of damaged buildings
during 1928 earthquake. The water table is within 10 meters of
the surface in those areas of Corinth and Loutraki suffering the largest
damages during 1928 earthquake and this confirms the influence of the
water table elevation to the macroseismic field.
