This paper describes an investigation of the ground motions recorded at the Turkey Flat test site, and of the predictions of those motions in the blind prediction symposium that took place in 2006. The subject investigation is currently in its early stages, so the current paper focuses on the site, measured subsurface conditions, and some of the characteristics of the recorded motions. A brief summary of the results of the ground motion predictions is also provided.
