2017 U.S. Geological Survey/BC Hydro seismic data recorded at three dam sites on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

In May 2017, we acquired high-resolution seismic profiles near three dam sites (Strathcona, Laodre and John Hart dams) located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Our goal was to measure seismic velocities (particularly Vs) at each dam site using body and surface waves. The data were analyzed using refraction tomography and multi-channel analysis of surface waves (MASW), especially in the upper 30 m of the subsurface. The analyzed data are presented in a separate report (Catchings and others, in review). We also recorded one hour of ambient noise (passive-source) data along most of the same profiles.
