The first relationship between Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) scale and the horizontal component of Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) was developed for the Costa Rican region using regression analysis of 108 earthquakes (2.8 < Mw < 7.7) that occurred between 1983 and 2004. For each PGA instrumentally recorded, a single MMI value was assigned based on the geographic proximity to the PGA observation. A total of 330 values of both the largest PGA of the two horizontal components (PGAmax) and the… Expand
