This guideline is an overview of the earthquake geotechnical engineering practice series. It includes technical detail about estimating ground motion parameters.
Module 1 guideline
Module 1: Overview of the guidelines, and other modules, are available in the earthquake geotechnical engineering practice series.
Module 1 educational resources
Module 1 is an overview only, so there is no related online learning. From September, you will be able to access and register for the online geotechnical educational resources related to other modules on the Engineering New Zealand website
