Ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) are one of the key input parameters for seismic hazard assessment (e.g., Petersen et al. 2008) and for the site-specific ground-motion response spectrum (GMRS) for nuclear power plants (U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 2007). Examples of GMPEs developed for the central and eastern United States include Somerville et al. (2001), Silva et al. (2002), Campbell (2003), and Atkinson and Boore (2006). Led by Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research, a significant effort is under way to systematically develop GMPEs for the central and eastern United States,...
