Recent developments in near-real-time recovery of strong-motion data have been expanded to include new means to
disseminate and rapidly utilize the data. The TriNet project, a cooperative project in southern California
involving CDMG, Caltech and the USGS, will disseminate earthquake data and information rapidly for use by
emergency responders. In another development, the release of strong-motion data by CSMIP will include simple
descriptors of the shaking level (Light, Moderate, Strong and Extreme Shaking). These descriptors, designed to be
easily understood by the non-specialist, will be complemented by more customary quantitative characterizations
(time-history and spectral levels). To make strong-motion data widely available for use in earthquake engineering
and engineering seismology, the data will be available for access by any current Web browser at the Internet site
http://www.consrv.ca.gov/CGS/smip. All strong-motion data released by CSMIP over the years are or will soon be
available at this location. For future significant earthquakes, strong-motion data will also be available rapidly
at the site.
