Empirical Equations for the Prediction of the Significant, Bracketed, and Uniform Duration of Earthquake Ground Motion
Abstract The complete characterization of earthquake ground motion includes the length of the interval of strong shaking as well as the amplitude and frequency content of the time series. There areExpand

The Influence of Magnitude Range on Empirical Ground-Motion Prediction
A key issue in the assessment of seismic hazard in regions of low- to-moderate seismicity is the extent to which accelerograms obtained from small- magnitude earthquakes can be used as the basis forExpand

An evaluation of the applicability of the NGA models to ground-motion prediction in the Euro-Mediterranean region
TLDR
The first phase of the Next Generation Attenuation (NGA) project has now finished, resulting in the publication of five new sets of empirical ground-motion models for PGA, PGV and response spectral ordinates. Expand

Selection of Ground Motion Prediction Equations for the Global Earthquake Model
Ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs) relate ground motion intensity measures to variables describing earthquake source, path, and site effects. From many available GMPEs, we select those modelsExpand

New predictive equations for Arias intensity from crustal earthquakes in New Zealand
Arias Intensity (Arias, MIT Press, Cambridge MA, pp 438–483, 1970) is an important measure of the strength of a ground motion, as it is able to simultaneously reflect multiple characteristics of theExpand

Low Levels of Nucleotide Diversity in Crocodylus moreletii and Evidence of Hybridization with C. acutus
Examinations of both population genetic structure and the processes that lead to such structure in crocodilians have been initiated in several species in response to a call by the IUCN CrocodileExpand
