Two earthquakes of approximate Magnitude 7.0 on the Richter scale occurred near Acapulco, Mexico in May, 1962. The acceleration records were recorded on two accelerographs in Mexico City, one in the foundation of the Tower Latino Americana and the second in Alameda Park. The velocity spectra of the eight components are presented here, along with details of the calculation method and the original acceleration records in both graphical and digital form.
