Global Earthquake Hazard Distribution - Peak Ground Acceleration

Abstract: Global Earthquake Hazard Distribution-Peak Ground Acceleration is a 2.5 by 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 ... View entire text

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