Starting with geological data, this paper estimates the seismicity for applications in seismic risk studies. The rate at which seismic moment is released can be estimated on a fault when the slip rate is known. Then, provided all of the deformation is released seismically, by assuming the relative frequency of different sizes of earthquakes, the absolute frequency of events can be obtained.
