Dr. Kenneth Campbell and Dr. Yousef Bozorgnia present a new empirical ground motion model for PGA, PGV, PGD and 5% damped linear elastic response spectra for periods ranging from 0.01 - 10s. This paper was submitted to the 14th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (14WCEE) held in Beijing early October 2008.

The empirical ground motion model (also referred to as an attenuation relation or ground motion prediction equation) presented in this paper represents the culmination of a four-year multidisciplinary study sponsored by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) referred to as the Next Generation Attenuation (NGA) Ground Motion Project (Power et al., 2008).
