Evolving the Fennoscandian GMPEs

Project: Research

Project Details


The objective of the project was to evolve the Fennoscandian GMPEs to a state-of-the-art format, giving the utilities and the regulator an effective tool for estimating the seismic hazard on the plants. The project included (i) analysis of the newly acquired data-sets from recent earthquakes, (ii) implementation in the analysis procedure of the most modern intensity measures and (iii) calibration of the GMPE constants.

Layman's description

The project developed a model for predicting shaking intensity at different distances from an earthquake source.
