The U.S. National Workshop on Strong-Motion Earthquake Instrumentation was held April 12-14, 1981 on the campus of Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. The Workshop was organized by a Steering Committee appointed by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and the Universities Council for Earthquake Engineering Research. This volume is the product of the combined efforts of those in attendance. The objectives of the Workshop were: 1) to review existing strong-motion Instrumentation programs in the U.S., 2) to develop a unified strategy for the deployment of strong-motion instruments both in the free-field and in buildings, and 3) to formulate a plan for the coordination of existing strong-motion programs, the on-going installation and operation of instruments and the management of strong-motion data. To achieve these objectives, the Workshop was organized into a number of Working Committees covering the major areas to be addressed. The reports of the Individual Working Committees are incorporated as chapters in this volume. Experts in earthquake engineering and seismology were invited from all over the nation to participate in the Workshop. In addition, experts were invited from a number of foreign countries. Prior to the Workshop a Strong-Motion Instrumentation Survey was sent to all U.S. organizations known to have active strong-motion programs. The results of this Survey were made available to the Workshop delegates and are included in this volume.
