curately constrain short- and long-term seismicity rates for use in seismic hazard assessment? How should geologic and paleoseismic data on faults best be used to determine earthquake recurrence rates?
Can physics-based scenario simulations produce more accurate estimates of ground-motion parameters than standard attenuation relationships? Can these simulations be used to reduce the high residual variance in these relationships?
What is the nature of near-fault ground motion? How do fault ruptures generate long-period directivity pulses? How do near-fault
