UCERF3

Hazard

The Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3 (UCERF3) is a model of earthquake occurrence for California developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP). The time-independent version of UCERF3 (Field et al., 2013; 2014) has been used for the 2014 update of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps (Petersen et al., 2014). The model has been translated from its original format into the OpenQuake (OQ) engine by GEM.
