Evolving the Fennoscandian GMPEs

Description

Project Evogy addresses the issue of Ground Motion Prediction Equations (GMPEs) needed for seismic-hazard analyses. In the computation of the probability of ground motion exceedance, the specification and parameterization of a seismic source model must be accompanied by appropriate relations for ground motion attenuation. A database of seismic recordings of the Finnish National Seismic Network is constructed and used to develop a GMPE for Finland and adjacent areas covering the frequency range of engineering interest.
The project is carried out in cooperation between the Institute of Seismology of the University of Helsinki and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.
