Summer 2019 Field Campaign

Summary of geotechnical data collection

  • Communication with organizations to share available data for summer field campaign planning.
  • Met with several agencies in July 2019 to obtain data access.
  • A Western data sharing agreement was developed and shared with agencies upon request.

There is an ongoing effort to obtain available geodata from agencies and municipalities.

Field data collection

  • The second project field campaign occurred throughout Metro Vancouver during July 1-31 2019.
  • Four local British Columbia undergraduate students from the University of British Columbia (UBC) were hired and trained to assist in data collection.
  • Over 500 MHVSR measurements were performed at locations in a ~600×600 m grid across the region in July 2019.
  • Multi-sensor seismic arrays including AVA  and MASW were performed at 43 sites in July 2019.
  • The hiring of UBC undergraduate students to assist in field data collection enabled ~100 more MHVSR measurements than in 2018.

Detailed processing and analysis is currently underway.
