National Seismic-Hazard Maps: Documentation June 1996

Open-File Report 96-532
By: , and 



In this release of hazard maps we present numerous maps and data with varying parameters. The computations for these maps and data used 50 year return periods on firm rock at 760 m/sec. All of the maps were prepared by combining hazard derived from spatially- smoothed historic seismicity with hazard from fault-specific sources. For more information please read our full documentation. Although these maps have been used by the U.S. Geological Survey, no warranty, expressed or implied is made by the USGS as to the accuracy of the maps and related material nor shall the fact of distribution constitute any such warranty, and no responsibility is assumed by the USGS in connection therewith.
