Seismic Hazard Assessment
Seismic hazard assessment plays a critical role in providing valuable insights into the effects of earthquakes to specific areas or facilities. Probabilistic seismic hazard assessment serves as a vital tool for understanding the probability of exceeding specific levels of ground motion within a given timeframe. Regional-scale seismic hazard models are commonly available, but for site-specific applications like dams or nuclear power plants, a more detailed assessment becomes necessary. At Mahan Geophysical Consulting, we offer comprehensive seismic hazard assessments that are tailored to meet the required level of precision. Our services encompass:
- Conducting deterministic seismic hazard assessments for specific rupture scenarios.
- Conducting probabilistic seismic hazard assessments and generation of comprehensive products, including hazard curves and maps, uniform hazard spectra, and disaggregated hazard information based on input parameters (magnitude, distance, and tectonic region).
- Determination of earthquake design ground motion.
