Abstract

We describe the SENSEI project conducted on the initiative of STUK, the Radiation and Nuclear safety Authority of Finland. The project aimed at exploring the sensitivity of probabilistic seismic hazard outputs to different choices of input parameters, based on the seismicity data available in Finland. We focus on the working procedure of the project, review its course and achievements, and discuss the possible scope of this kind of approach to seismic hazard analysis. We demonstrate some of the challenges of the deductive PSHA in low-seismicity regions with examples from Finland, northern Europe.
