Technical Updates: 2015, Fourth Quarter

The NGA-East activities during this quarter were concentrated on documentation. The draft final report (Rev. 0) was submitted for review at the end of October. This report contains the documentation of the original NGA-East tasks and contains over 600 pages. A new task, geared toward resolving interface issues with source depth between the Central and Eastern U.S. Seismic Source Characterization model (CEUS SSC) and the NGA-East Ground-Motion Characterization model was officially initiated in November. This new task is to develop a model for seismic source depth in the CEUS. The documentation for this supplemental work will be added to the draft report.
