Summary
Abstract: This report presents probabilistic seismic hazard maps for
Seattle, Washington, based on over 500 3D simulations of ground
motions from scenario earthquakes. These maps include 3D sedimentary
basin effects and rupture directivity. Nonlinear site response for
soft-soil sites of fill and alluvium was also applied in the maps. The
report describes the methodology for incorporating source and site
