        Description:
                Abstract:
                        This Relative Earthquake Hazard Map of the
                        Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area depicts the relative
                        risk of earthquake damage that results from local geologic
                        conditions. On a neighborhood-to-neighborhood scale,
                        local geologic conditions contribute as much as, or more
                        than, any other factor to the hazard portion of a risk
                        assessment. Showing in relative terms on a single map the
                        hazard contribution of different earthquake-related hazards
                        allows a nongeologic and nonengineering audience to
                        work more effectively toward reducing the risk to life and
                        property through planning, policy, and mitigation measures.
                        The composite hazard map was developed by combining
                        single hazard maps for ground motion amplification and
                        slope instability. The single component maps were
                        developed to show geographic patterns of stronger
                        earthquake effects for two likely earthquake sources.
                        Zones that are expected to have the most pronounced
                        damage in any moderate or larger earthquake are shown
                        on the map as having the greatest hazard.
                Purpose:
                        The purpose of the study was to produce a relative
                        earthquake hazard map for the Eugene-Springfield
                        Metropolitan area and to produce single hazard maps for
                        ground shaking amplification and slope stability within the
                        same area.

        Use_Constraints:
                The map depicts earthquake hazard zones that are based
                on limited geologic and geophysical data, as described in
                the text. The map is not a substitute for site-specific
                investigations by qualified practitioners. At any point in the
                map area, site-specific data may give results that differ from
                those shown on the map. Some appropriate uses for the
                map are discussed in the text. For a complete
                understanding of the earthquake hazard, consultation of

                Mineral Industries Geological Map Series GMS-100.
