ES 30:3 (Aug 2014) Special Issue on the NGA-West2 Project

The August 2014 special issue of Earthquake Spectra is devoted to the NGA-West2 project, which produced substantial new data resources and simulation results to guide the development of state-of-the-art models for ground motion prediction applicable to active crustal regions, such as California. This special issue presents a series of papers describing the databases and the prediction models, as well as several additional critical issues related to the development or implementation of the models. These include modeling of directivity and directionality, scaling of pseudo-spectral accelerations for different levels of oscillator damping, evaluation of aftershock vs. main shock ground motions, treatment of epistemic uncertainties, applications of the models in USGS national hazard maps, and evaluation of site effects.
