Earthquake frequency statistics, and probabilistic seismic hazard in southern California and New Zealand.


Description

Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) is the subject of this dissertation. Chapters 1 to 4 address aspects of earthquake frequency statistics and fault mechanics, and investigate methods for evaluating PSH models. Chapter 5 incorporates the results of the earlier chapters to construct the first national PSH maps for New Zealand that consider both geological and seismological data.
