Implements GMPE developed by David M. Boore and Gail M. Atkinson and published as “Ground-Motion Prediction Equations for the Average Horizontal Component of PGA, PGV, and 5%-Damped PSA at Spectral Periods between 0.01 and 10.0 s” (2008, Earthquake Spectra, Volume 24, No. 1, pages 99-138).

COEFFS = <openquake.hazardlib.gsim.base.CoeffsTable object at 0x2b1d1fb01c10>

Coefficient table is constructed from values in tables 6, 7 and 8 (pages 119, 120, 121). Spectral acceleration is defined for damping of 5%, see ‘Response Variables’ page 100. c1, c2, c3, h are the period-dependent distance scaling coefficients. e1, e2, e3, e4, e5, e6, e7, Mh are the period-dependent magnitude- sigma, tau, std are the intra-event uncertainty, inter-event uncertainty, and total standard deviation, respectively. Note that only the inter-event and total standard deviation for ‘specified’ fault type are considered (because rake angle is always specified)

COEFFS_SOIL_RESPONSE = <openquake.hazardlib.gsim.base.CoeffsTable object at 0x2b1d1fb01b10>

Table 3, pag. 110. + coefficient values for additional frequencies extracted from Fortran code implementing soil response function developed by the original author (ab06_fmrvs_evaluate_gmpes.for available at http://www.daveboore.com/pubs_online.html - see code available for Atkinson, G. M. and D. M. Boore (2006). Earthquake ground -motion prediction equations for eastern North America)
