Unforunately, the closest that I could find was Beijing in China, which is
still QUITE a distance from Ulaan Baatar.  Beijing is classified as a zone

Sorry that I could not help more.



   Contact David Swartz of the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, CA.  I believe they have done some seismic hazard studies in Mongolia; and, if anyone can help, Ghengis Khan!
