Summary
Abstract: Map delineation of the different types and ages of Quaternary deposits
supports evaluation of susceptibility to liquefaction, the immediate
application of the work, but serves many other purposes as well. It provides a
framework for interpreting the architecture and history of the Quaternary
sedimentary basins, which is used in estimating earthquake shaking and modeling
the groundwater system. The ... View entire text
