Coefficients for deep events taken from Excel file produced by Trevor Allen and provided by Geoscience Australia (20120821.GMPE_coeffs.xls) (coefficients in the original report are not correct)

Supported intensity measure component is the median horizontal component see table 7, page 35
Supported intensity measure types is spectral acceleration, see table 7, page 35, and PGA (coefficients assumed to be the same of SA(0.01))
Supported standard deviation type is only total, see table 7, page 35
Supported tectonic region type is stable continental crust
Required distance measure is closest distance to rupture, see paragraph ‘Regression of Model Coefficients’, page 32
Required rupture parameters are magnitude and hypocentral depth, see paragraph ‘Regression of Model Coefficients’, page 32 and tables 7 and 8, pages 35, 36
No site parameters are needed, the GMPE is calibrated for average South East Australia site conditions (assumed consistent to Vs30 = 820 m/s) see paragraph ‘Executive Summary’, page VII
