Analysis of Completeness of the Earthquake Sample in the Puget Sound Area and Its Effect on Statistical Estimates of Earthquake Hazard
In this paper the 100-year sample of earthquakes known to have occurred in the Puget Sound area between 1870 and 1969 ls evaluated for completeness and the question of fitting the frequency formula log N = a + bl0 to biased samples that are short with respect to the recurrence Interval of the largest earthquakes contained 111 them ts studied.
