In their paper Strasser et al. (2009) discussed some basics of regression analysis and the impact of different techniques on the residuals of empirical attenuation equations. They provided a completely incorrect representation of the methods developed by Klügel et al. (2006) aimed at combining tradional deterministic and neodeterministic methods with advanced probabilistic data models into a probabilistic scenario-based risk assessment methodology. This method removes many of the simplifications associated with the traditional probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) methodology. The authors make the assertion (pages 44 to 45) that we reduce the aleatory variability of empirical ground-motion...
