CSI uses the 1906 San Francisco ground shaking recreated by new technology from USGS.

Using three-dimensional geological and seismic velocity models, scientists at the USGS have recreated what they think was the ground shaking due to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

Using seismic accelerograms produced by this new technology from the USGS, CSI software has been used to create animations that show the behavior of some California landmarks subjected to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
