Abstract

"Three 1:24000 scale quadrangles were selected for a pilot program intended to evaluate seismic site response across the spectrum of geologic conditions underlying the St. Louis Metropolitan area, using the Granite City, Monks Mound and Columbia Bottom quadrangles. These evaluations included assessments of: i) site amplification distributions; ii) probabilistic hazard analysis of PGA, 0.2 second and 1.0 second spectral accelerations for 2%, 5% and 10% probability of exceedance in 50 years; iii) two scenario earthquakes and their associated PGA, 0.2 sec, and 1 sec spectral accelerations; and v) sensitivity and uncertainty analyses. These hazard maps were prepared using a fully-probabilistic approach, which considered uncertainties in the input data and in the predicted site amplification"--Abstract, page iii.

Comments

Accompanying CD-ROM, available at Missouri S&T Library, contains site amplification and seismic hazard results for each grid point (1974 points) considered in the study. The results have prepared as .txt files. The CD-ROM also contains the maps generated from these estimated results. The maps are prepared as .png files.
