Prediction of ground motion in Mexico City from postulated earthquakes in the central trans‐Mexican volcanic belt (CTMVB) is clearly important in the estimation of seismic risk. Unfortunately, moderate seismicity and sparse seismic network in the region makes the task difficult. Few useful recordings of CTMVB earthquakes are available in the near‐source region and in the Valley of Mexico. Deterministic modeling of wavefield, reliable at frequencies of interest, remains a challenge due to the complex and mostly unknown crustal structure of the CTMVB and the Valley of Mexico in which the city is located. Even reliable determination of the magnitude of...
