Strong motion records of the Milford Sound earthquake 1976 May 4
The strong-motion records obtained during the Milford Sound earthquake of 4 May 1976 are of particular interest since the assigned intensities are exceptionally low for an earthquake of magnitude 7. The recorded ground motions are presented here in the general format proposed for publication of significant earthquakes recorded by the New Zealand strong-motion network. It is seen that the ground motions are consistent with the low intensities assigned.
