earthquake intensity classification

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Japanese Building Standard Law(BSL) classify earthquakes intensity as
follows.

1) moderate earthquake shaking: 0.07g-0.10g(PGA)

2) severe earthquake shaking: 0.34g-0.4g(PGA)


How about other countries?

USA has a classification of earthquake intensity?


Thanks in advance
