A Methodology to Estimate Site-Specific Seismic Hazard for Critical Facilities on Soil or Soft-Rock Sites
Site-specific probabilistic seismic hazard assessments (PSHAs) and associated seismic design bases are critically dependent upon the local geological and geotechnical model. For reactor and critical non-reactor facilities on soil or softrock sites exhibiting strain-dependent behavior, estimates of site response can change significantly as site measurements and inferred structure evolve.

The Forest Service will host its remaining two public meetings in Queen Valley on October 8 and in Tempe on October 10.
Video & Materials
A video presentation – the same information introduced at each public meeting – as well as meeting materials (posters and newsletter) are available for public review.
