Abstract

To estimate the seismic hazard to underground facilities or operations in the environs of a mining-induced tremor or a natural earthquake, it is useful to be able to relate locally recorded seismic waveforms to peak ground velocity and slip at the causative fault. For this purpose, far-field S wave pulses are analyzed to define the faulting slip D and near-fault peak ground velocity D/2 that give rise to the most significant ground motion. from Author
