Abstract

The majority of the close-in accelerograms from the Mw7.1 September 4th, 2010 Darfield Earthquake were recorded by the local Canterbury Network (CanNet), which was being installed in the central South Island of New Zealand in anticipation of both a great earthquake on the Alpine Fault and moderate events on the Marlborough fault system. At the time of the earthquake, 36 of the planned 60 free field instruments were in place on the Canterbury Plains, in and surrounding the epicentral region, and across the nearby City of Christchurch. This paper presents a brief history of the network, and examines some results from the recorded strong ground motion.
