Introduction

The California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (CSMIP) is cooperating with the City of Los Angeles and other agencies to recover accelerograms from instruments required by the City's Building Code. The digitized and processed records obtained from instruments located in twenty Code buildings, that recorded the Northridge earthquake of January 17, 1994, are included in this first release. All twenty stations are located in the City of Los Angeles, mainly in the San Fernando Valley, West Los Angeles and Century City areas (Figure 1). Additional details and background on instrumentation required by the Uniform Building Code, as adopted by the City of Los Angeles, are discussed in a following section.
