Average seismic potential

The average seismic potential (Ps) is defined as Ps = A (log N + Mmax), where, A is the normalization parameter, N is the long-range average seismicity rate of events at a certain point, and Mmax is the maximum magnitude of the past earthquakes in the catalog. To define the average seismic potential, we use the EMSC seismic catalog ( since the year 2000. The range of the normalised values of the average seismic potential is between 0 and 1. The average seismic potential represents the long-range average seismicity. The average seismic potential can be calculated with a resolution of 1 or 0.1 degrees.
