Implements GMPE developed by G. M Atkinson and D. Boore and published as “Empirical Ground-Motion Relations for Subduction-Zone Earthquakes and Their Application to Cascadia and Other Regions” (Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, Volume 93, Number 4, pages 1703-1929, 2003) and includes correction for subduction interface equations as described in “Erratum to ‘Empirical Ground Motion Relations for Subduction-Zone Earthquakes and their application to Cascadia and other regions’”, Gail M. Atkinson and David M. Boore, Volume 98, Number 5, pp.2567-2569, 2008. The class implements the global model but not the corrections for Japan/Cascadia. SA values at 4 s (not supported by the original equations) are obtained from mean value at 3 s divided by a factor equal to 0.550 (scaling factor computed in the context of the SHARE project and obtained as average ratio between median values at 4 and 3 seconds as predicted by SHARE subduction GMPEs). The class implements the equations for ‘Subduction Interface’ (that’s why the class name ends with ‘SInter’).
Supported intensity measure component is the random horizontal
Supported intensity measure types are spectral acceleration, and peak ground acceleration, see table 1, page 1715
Supported standard deviation types are inter-event, intra-event and total, see table 1, page 1715
Supported tectonic region type is subduction interface
Required distance measure is closest distance to rupture, see equation 1, page 1706
Required rupture parameters are magnitude and focal depth, see equation 1, page 1706
Required site parameters is Vs30, used to distinguish between NEHRP soil classes, see paragraph ‘Functional Form’, page 1706

Extend AtkinsonBoore2003SInter and introduces site amplification for B/C site condition and fixed rupture hypocentral depth (20 km) as defined by the National Seismic Hazard Mapping Project (NSHMP) for the 2008 US hazard model
Site amplification for B/C is triggered when vs30 > 760 and it is computed as site amplification for C soil scaled by a factor equal to 0.5
The class implements the equation as coded in subroutine getABsub in hazSUBXnga.f Fortran code available at: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/hazards/products/conterminous/2008/software/
