Probabilistic Source Selection for the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Results from a study supported by FEMA Region IX
by Loyce M. Adams, Randall J. LeVeque, Donsub Rim, and Frank I. Gonzalez

Abstract. This report has been submitted to FEMA Region IX as a final project report for a project on developing new methodologies for Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Assessment (PTHA). We propose a methodology for taking a large number of realizations of potential future earthquakes (with associated probabilities) and producing good approximations to the resulting hazard curves and maps without doing a computationally-expensive fine-grid tsunami simulation for each realization.
