Liquefaction Potential of Native Ground in West Kobe, Japan by the Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW) Method

Figure 2

Maps of Wadamisaki district showing liquefaction sites.

The Wadamisaki district is located in the western Hyogo Ward of Kobe City, in Hyogo Prefecture. Our numbered test sites fall along the JR-West Wadamisaki railroad feeder-line built in 1890 (Dashed). Sites that experienced liquefaction (L) are solid circles; and sites that did not experience liquefaction sites (NL) are open circles. Many other sites were tested in Kobe, Port Island (PI), Rokko Island (RI), Ashiya, and Nishinomiya.
