USGS Zip Code Earthquake Ground Motion Information

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are interested in obtaining earthquake ground motion hazard values,
such as 
Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA), 0.2 second period spectral acceleration, 0.3
second period spectral acceleration and 1.0 second period spectral
acceleration for 10%, 5% and 2% probability of exceedence (PE) in 50 years
log in to Web Site    http://gldage.usgs.gov, then click on Earthquake, then
National Seismic Hazard Mapping Project, then Hazard by Zip Code, move down
to where boxes are located for you to enter Zip Code and then click on
Submit.  You will then get the above information concerning earthquake ground
motion hazard values for the particular Zip Code you are interested in for
the United States.
