Summary
Abstract: Global Earthquake Hazard Distribution-peak ground acceleration is a 2.5 minute grid of global earthquake hazards developed using Global Seismic Hazard Program (GSHAP) data that incorporate expert opinion in predicting localities where there exists a 10 percent chance of exceeding a peak ground acceleration (pga) of 2 meters per second per second (approximately one-fifth of surface gravitational ...

Purpose: To provide a means of assessing the relative distribution and frequency of global earthquake hazard.

Quality Using historical and expert opinion, GSHAP developed a dataset of peak ground acceleration (pga) values to be exceeded in a 50-year period at a 10 percent probability level, or once every 500 years. This dataset is a point file regularly spaced a 1 degree intervals. To ensure compatibility across the project, the dataset was resampled to 2.5 minutes. For Global Earthquake Hazard Distribution-peak ... View entire text
