Abstract

AbstractThe article describes the stages and results of research for developing a prototype of general seismic zoning maps of the Russian Federation (GSZ-2016). The standard GSZ-2015 and GSZ-2016 maps are compared. The need to transition to seismic hazard mapping of the Russian Federation in parameters of physical characteristics is shown. The global experience of using peak ground accelerations and amplitudes of the response spectra as mapped values is considered. Existing software packages for probabilistic seismic hazard analysis are briefly reviewed and compared. The problem of using empirical seismic wave attenuation models to calculate GSZ maps for the Russian Federation is examined. The first results of such calculations are presented. Further research trends are defined for preparing the initial database required for creating new-generation GSZ maps for the Russian Federation.
