...Gisela Viegas AbstractThe 16 July 2010 M 3.4 Germantown, Maryland, earthquake was the largest recorded earthquake to occur within 50 km of Washington, D.C. I estimated the source parameters of the Germantown earthquake and its M 2.1 aftershock using the empirical Green’s Function (EGF) method. I...

... been considered for estimation of source parameters of the 16 July 2010 ( M w  3.4) Germantown earthquake ( Viegas, 2012 ). The length of time window determines whether the ballistic pulse or coda is included in the calculation; thus, this is a possible source of uncertainty in energy estimate. Here...

...THOMAS L. HOLZER; THOMAS E. NOCE; MICHAEL J. BENNETT AbstractLiquefaction probability curves that predict the probability of surface manifestations of earthquake-induced liquefaction are developed for 14 different types of surficial geologic units. The units consist of alluvial fan, beach ridge...

... for the United States, North America, and the global economy. The principal natural hazards are the frequent severe weather and the prospect of a repeat of the >7M 1811–1812 New Madrid earthquakes. These unavoidable exposures to severe weather, urban and riverine flooding, and earthquakes combined with social...
