Seismic zones were developed for southeastern New England based on geological and geophysical data and on historic seismicity. Each zone was assigned a floating maximum earthquake and earthquake motions were attenuated from their sources to the site. The site was found to be subject to a local earthquake acceleration 0.16 g, velocity 13 cmsec, and duration or 0.05 g of 4 sec and a Cape Ann earthquake acceleration 0.13 g, velocity 13 cmsec, and duration or 0.05 g of 4 sec. Accelerograms and response spectra appropriate to these values were selected.
