In a previous report of work done under contract with the Office of Naval Research there were presented the spectra of all suitable strong-motion earthquake accelerograms recorded prior to August, 1951. On July 21, 1952 a strong earthquake occurred in the region of Arvin and Tehachapi, California.. The ground accelerations were recorded at Taft, California on an instrument maintained by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. The present report gives the spectra as computed from the Taft accelerograms.
