Good day!

I am a student currently doing my master's thesis.

I would like to request for time-history data (time vs acceleration) of at least 10 earthquake events in the country preferably with magnitude > 6.5. This data will be used for my research about damage prediction models for buildings.

Thank you and God Bless,
Jan Alexis Monsalud

Good day,

Upon checking the website, it does NOT contain data about my requested time-histories. I am specifically looking for time vs acceleration records which are from the earthquake ground motion waveforms if available.

Please reconsider my request.

Thank you,
