4 show contours of PGA with 10% and 2% chances of occurring over the next 50 years. These maps are created with data from the USGS to produce uniform probabilistic seismic hazard maps for the United States. T he 10% of a year PGA value means that over the next 50 years, there is a 10% probability of this level of ground shaking or higher.   Additionally, the seismic hazard in California extends over a wider area than prior maps indicated. USGS According to the USGS, all 50 states have some potential for seismic activity, but 42 states have a reasonable chance of experiencing damaging ground shaking from an earthquake during a year period—the average design life of a building.

Every few years, the Japanese government produces a national seismic hazard map like that in figure 1. But since , all earthquakes that have caused 10 or more fatalities in that country have occurred in places the map designated as low hazard — Tohoku being one of them. Similar discrepancies between expected and actual shaking have.

Seismic-Hazard Maps for Hawaii. ByF.W. Klein, A.D. Frankel, C.S. Mueller, R.L. Wesson, andP.G. Okubo. Version This map is presented in Portable Document Format. Adobe Acrobat Reader. Abstract. Probabilistic seismic hazard maps were prepared for Hawaii portraying peak horizontal ground acceleration and horizontal spectral response acceleration for, and second periods with probabilities of exceedance of 10% in 50 years and 2% in 50 years.

This particular data set is for horizontal spectral response acceleration for second period with a 10% probability of exceedance.

The maps will be revised in light of these comments and final maps will be produced in the beginning of April This documentation describes the methodology used to produce the new maps. The first rigorous probabilistic seismic hazard map for the southeast part of the main island of Hawaii was prepared by Klein ().

The colors in the maps denote “seismic design categories” (SDCs), which reflect the likelihood of experiencing earthquake shaking of various intensities. (Building design and construction professionals use SDCs specified in building codes to determine the level of.

The National Seismic Hazard Maps are used by the insurance industry to set earthquake insurance premiums, by reinsurance companies to evaluate their risk to major disasters, by government officials and land use managers, and by private companies worried about the exposure of facilities and supply chains to natural hazards.

Long-term National Seismic Hazard Map. Earthquake hazard map showing peak ground accelerations having a 2 percent probability of being exceeded in 50 years, for a firm rock site. The map is based on the most recent USGS models for the conterminous U.S. (), Hawaii.

Official Maps of Seismic Hazard Zones are issued periodically by the California Geological Survey in compliance with the Seismic Hazard Mapping Act.

The easiest way is to find out if a property is located in a Seismic Hazard Zone is to use the California Earthquake Hazards Zone Application or search our collection of online maps.

Non-engineers can use these maps to judge the relative seismic hazard, where high seismic hazards are depicted in warm (red-orange) colors. Learn more about Hawaii's seismic hazard map and the seismic hazard where you live and work.

Seismic hazard zones reflect intensity and probability of shaking. Abstract. The U.S. National Seismic Hazard Maps are revised every six years, corresponding with the update cycle of the International Building Code.

These maps cover the conterminous U.S. and will be updated in using the best-available science that is obtained from colleagues at regional and topical workshops, which are convened in Maps for Alaska and Hawaii will be updated shortly.
