Abstract:The presence of deep unconsolidated deposits in the upper Mississippi Embayment has an important impact on anticipated surface motions. PSHA-NL, probabilistic seismic hazard analysis with nonlinear site effects, can be used to estimate seismic hazard with the effect of deep deposits. This thesis extends the PSHA-NL procedure to incorporate a finite fault model in PSHA without applying artificial caps on computed ground motions, and include randomized soil column properties representing the Mississippi Embayment to evaluate depth dependent site coefficients. Probabilistic seismic hazard maps considering effects of thick soil deposit for Mississippi Embayment are proposed.
