St. Louis, Missouri, is a major center for population, transportation, power, and utility transmission in the Midwest, and it is also at significant potential risk from seismically induced liquefaction and associated ground deformation of lowland alluvium. The simplified liquefaction map for St. Louis shows areas of severe risk (brown) as well as areas of artificial fill with unknown liquefaction potential (black) that require special study. Cramer et al. (this issue) used a new detailed near-surface shear-wave velocity model in a 1D equivalent-linear response analysis to estimate ground motions at the surface.
