Frankel, A., Hartzell, S., Liu, P., and Zeng, Y., 2010, Broadband Synthetic Ground Motion Records: U.S. Geological Survey,


The dataset contains broadband synthetic ground motion records for three events: 1) 1994 M6.7 Northridge, CA, 2) 1989 M7.0 Loma Prieta, CA, and 3) 1999 M7.5 Izmit, Turkey. For each event, 1D synthetic earthquake ground motion time histories are provided, based on four different methodologies: 1) Frankel, A. (2009). A constant stress-drop model for producing broadband synthetic seismograms: comparison with the next generation attenuation relations, Bull. Seism. Soc. Am. V.99, 664-680. 2) Hartzell, S., M. Guatteri, P. Martin Mai, P. Liu, and M. Fisk (2005). Calculation of broadband time histories of ground motion, part II: kinematic and dynamic modeling using theoretical Green’s functions and comparison with the 1994 Northridge earthquake, [...]
