Task 3: Select or Derive a Global Set of GMPEs

In this task, the GMPEs compiled and screened in Task 2 will be reviewed, adjusted (if needed) and selected as one of the Global GMPEs in order to identify the final suite of Ground motion models. For each tectonic region, the selection and adjustment will be based on review of the applicability to a wide range of magnitude, distance and so forth, and the compatibility of the GMPEs with the recorded regional ground motion data.

The final sets of the selected GMPEs, including their coefficients and definitions of various parameters, as well as coded and verified equations, will be organized for distribution. The final product will also include simplifying recommendations for input parameters.
