Temperatures in tropical regions are estimated to have increased by 3° to 5°C, compared with Late Paleocene values, during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM, 56.3 million years ago) event. We investigated the tropical forest response to this rapid warming by evaluating the palynological record of three stratigraphic sections in eastern Colombia and(More)
Nonlinear response history analysis (RHA) is now being increasingly used to estimate engineering demand parameters (EDPs)—floor displacements, story drifts, member forces, member deformations, etc.—of buildings and special structures subjected to ground motions. As an input, RHA requires a small set of earthquake records. These records should be properly(More)
