Seismic Microzonation of Dehradun

The unconsolidated materials of young sedimentary basins can have a profound effect on the spatial distribution of earthquake ground motion amplification, resulting in a large variation in the severity of damage to buildings, transportation corridors and other lifeline infrastructures. To be able to carry out a seismic microzonation study for such sedimentary basins a large amount of input data is required on the three dimensional structure of the basin, the stratigraphy of the unconsolidated deposits and their geotechnical and geophysical...
