A moderate-size earthquake (magnitude ) occurred at (local time) on August 6, in the central California coastal region (figure 1).

The earthquake was instrumentally located in the Calaveras fault zone at Coyote Lake approximately 10 km north-northeast of Gilroy, California. This report represents a joint effort by the OSMS, CDMG and the U.S.

Geological Survey (USGS). The report summarizes all strong-motion accelerograph records recovered from the August 6, Coyote Lake earthquake. The majority of accelerograms were recorded at stations operated by the OSMS-CDMG and USGS; the latter organization operates a network of instruments that belong to.

The Coyote Lake earthquake occurred at local time on August 6 with a moment magnitude of and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VII (Very strong).The shock occurred on the Calaveras Fault near Coyote Lake in Santa Clara County, California and resulted in a number of injuries, including some that required hospitalization.

Most of the $, in damage that was caused was Magnitude: Mw. The report summarizes all strong-motion accelerograph records recovered from the August 6, Coyote Lake earthquake.

The majority of accelerograms were recorded at stations operated by the OSMS-CDMG and USGS; the latter organization operates a network of instruments that belong to various federal agencies. The Coyote Lake, California, earthquake of 6 August (M L = ) provided a rare opportunity to perform a dynamic numerical analysis of a seismically induced slope failure using actual strong-motion earthquake displaced a preexisting slump on the northeast shore of Lake Anderson and formed a fissure 20 m long; offsets of 9 mm vertically and 18 mm horizontally were measured.

The effect of alluvium on strong ground motion can be seen by comparing two strong-motion records of the Coyote Lake, California, earthquake of 6 August (M L = ).One record at a site on Franciscan bedrock had a peak horizontal acceleration of g and a peak horizontal velocity of 10 cm/sec.

The other, at a site 2 km distant on meters of Quaternary alluvium overlying Franciscan. Title: Processed data from the San Juan Bautista / separation bridge and the San Juan Bautista freefield records from the Coyote Lake earthquake, 6 August Creator(s): Porter, L.

For each record, we determined the Arias () intensity, a single numerical measure of the shaking intensity of the record calculated by integrating the squared acceleration values (Jibson, ). Then, for each strong-motion record, we conducted a rigorous Newmark analysis for several values of critical acceleration, ranging from to 0.Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lead section, the lede adequately stands alone as a concise overview of the Coyote Lake earthquake.

The lede defines the earthquake's effects, establishes context for the earthquake, explains why the earthquake is notable, and summarizes the most important points of the earthquake.
