The true performance of ground-motion prediction equations is often not fully appreciated until they are used in practice for seismic hazard analyses and applied to a wide range of scenarios and exceedance levels. This has been the case for equations published recently for the prediction of peak ground velocity (PGV), peak ground acceleration (PGA), and response spectral ordinates in Europe, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean (Akkar and Bommer 2007a,b). This paper presents an update that corrects the shortcomings identified in those equations, which are primarily, but not exclusively, related to the model for the ground-motion variability....
