Seismic hazard

Seismic hazard maps presenting the level of certain ground motions that have a 10% chance of exceedance (or a 90% chance of non-exceedance) during a 50-year time span (corresponding to a return period of 475 years). The seismic hazard data shown from Giardini et al. (2003) describes the peak ground acceleration.
