Site Coordinates 33.984°N, 117.354°W
Site Soil Classification Site Class D – “Stiff Soil”
Risk Category I/II/III

USGS–Provided Output

SS =    1.500 g SMS =   1.500 g SDS =   1.000 g
S1 =    0.600 g SM1 =   0.900 g SD1 =   0.600 g
For information on how the SS and S1 values above have been calculated from 
 probabilistic (risk-targeted) and deterministic ground motions in the 
direction of maximum horizontal response, please return to the application 
and select the “2009 NEHRP” building code reference document.
