The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Seismic Hazard Maps display ground motions and accelerations. They are used to formulate seismic building codes based on risk and are derived from seismic hazard curves calculated on a grid of sites across the United States that describe the frequency of exceeding a given set of ground motions. The. The instructor should present and discuss the national seismic hazard maps and tie in the fact that the hazard maps reflect in scientific terms the information presented in the first part of the lecture. The instructor should explain the maps in general terms and discuss how they were developed, but the technical details of how the mapsFile Size: 1MB. The seismic hazard of the central U.S. (CUS) is regularly assessed via the national seismic hazard maps produced by the USGS. These maps provide the ground-motion input to the building code process, and are also often used for retrofit guidelines, insurance assessments, design of bridges, dams, and landfills, land-use planning, and other purposes.   Seismic hazard. Any physical phenomena associated with an earthquake (e.g., ground motion, ground failure, liquefaction, and tsunami) and their effects on land, man-made structure, and socioeconomic systems that have the potential to produce a loss.

Data is available in multiple formats. The oldest data is from. These are essential tools for developing national seismic hazard maps and modern seismic design provisions in national building codes. For instance, the current seismic design codes in the United States and Canada specify expected ground motion intensities at 2% probability of exceedance in 50 years (i.e.

years return period level). COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle.

In this paper, we describe the scientific basis for the source and ground-motion models applied in the National Seismic Hazard Maps, the development of new products that are used for building design and risk analyses, relationships between the hazard maps and design maps used in building codes, and potential future improvements to the hazard maps.

The seismic hazard maps and earthquake load guidelines included in the National Building Code are used to design and construct buildings to be as earthquake proof as possible. The provisions of the building code are intended as a minimum standard. Title United States National Seismic Hazard Maps [electronic resource].

Significantly, the new maps showing contours for the S s and S 1 values were based on probabilistic seismic hazard analysis for every point on a 2 km by 2 km grid (approximately miles by miles) across the United States.

These hazard analyses used the best available scientific knowledge to assess the values of these accelerations for a 2,year return period. The data obtained from active source studies are archived at IRIS and/or at the National Geophysical Data Center.

USGS also provides access to certain data sets.
