Seismic sources and ruptures

Package openquake.hazardlib.source deals with various types of seismic sources.

Earthquake rupture

Module openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture defines classes Rupture, BaseProbabilisticRupture and its subclasses NonParametricProbabilisticRupture and ParametricProbabilisticRupture

class openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.BaseProbabilisticRupture(mag, rake, tectonic_region_type, hypocenter, surface, source_typology, rupture_slip_direction=None, surface_nodes=())[source]

Base class for a probabilistic rupture, that is a Rupture associated with a temporal occurrence model defining probability of rupture occurrence in a certain time span.

get_probability_no_exceedance(poes)[source]

Compute and return the probability that in the time span for which the rupture is defined, the rupture itself never generates a ground motion value higher than a given level at a given site.

Such calculation is performed starting from the conditional probability that an occurrence of the current rupture is producing a ground motion value higher than the level of interest at the site of interest.

The actual formula used for such calculation depends on the temporal occurrence model the rupture is associated with.

The calculation can be performed for multiple intensity measure levels and multiple sites in a vectorized fashion.

Parameters:poes – 2D numpy array containing conditional probabilities the the a rupture occurrence causes a ground shaking value exceeding a ground motion level at a site. First dimension represent sites, second dimension intensity measure levels. poes can be obtained calling the method.
sample_number_of_occurrences()[source]

Randomly sample number of occurrences from temporal occurrence model probability distribution.

Note

This method is using random numbers. In order to reproduce the same results numpy random numbers generator needs to be seeded, see http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/generated/numpy.random.seed.html

Returns:int, Number of rupture occurrences
class openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.NonParametricProbabilisticRupture(mag, rake, tectonic_region_type, hypocenter, surface, source_typology, pmf, rupture_slip_direction=None)[source]

Probabilistic rupture for which the probability distribution for rupture occurrence is described through a generic probability mass function.

Parameters:pmf

Instance of openquake.hazardlib.pmf.PMF. Values in the abscissae represent number of rupture occurrences (in increasing order, staring from 0) and values in the ordinates represent associated probabilities. Example: if, for a given time span, a rupture has probability 0.8 to not occurr, 0.15 to occur once, and 0.05 to occur twice, the pmf can be defined as

pmf = PMF([(Decimal('0.8'), 0), (Decimal('0.15'), 1),
            Decimal('0.05', 2)])
Raises ValueError:
 If number of ruptures in pmf do not start from 0, are not defined in increasing order, and if they are not defined with unit step
get_probability_no_exceedance(poes)[source]

See superclass method for spec of input and result values.

Uses the formula

∑ p(k|T) * p(X<x|rup)^k

where p(k|T) is the probability that the rupture occurs k times in the time span T, p(X<x|rup) is the probability that a rupture occurrence does not cause a ground motion exceedance, and the summation is done over the number of occurrences k.

p(k|T) is given by the constructor’s parameter pmf, and p(X<x|rup) is computed as 1 - poes.

sample_number_of_occurrences()[source]

Point source

Module openquake.hazardlib.source.point defines PointSource.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.point.PointSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type, mfd, rupture_mesh_spacing, magnitude_scaling_relationship, rupture_aspect_ratio, temporal_occurrence_model, upper_seismogenic_depth, lower_seismogenic_depth, location, nodal_plane_distribution, hypocenter_distribution)[source]

Point source typology represents seismicity on a single geographical location.

Parameters:
  • upper_seismogenic_depth – Minimum depth an earthquake rupture can reach, in km.
  • lower_seismogenic_depth – Maximum depth an earthquake rupture can reach, in km.
  • locationPoint object representing the location of the seismic source. The depth value of that point is ignored.

Returns:Tuple of two items: rupture length in width in km.

The rupture area is calculated using method get_median_area() of source’s magnitude-scaling relationship. In any case the returned dimensions multiplication is equal to that value. Than the area is decomposed to length and width with respect to source’s rupture aspect ratio.

If calculated rupture width being inclined by nodal plane’s dip angle would not fit in between upper and lower seismogenic depth, the rupture width is shrunken to a maximum possible and rupture length is extended to preserve the same area.

_get_rupture_surface(mag, nodal_plane, hypocenter)[source]

Create and return rupture surface object with given properties.

Parameters:
Returns:

Instance of PlanarSurface.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.area.AreaSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type, mfd, rupture_mesh_spacing, magnitude_scaling_relationship, rupture_aspect_ratio, temporal_occurrence_model, upper_seismogenic_depth, lower_seismogenic_depth, nodal_plane_distribution, hypocenter_distribution, polygon, area_discretization)[source]

Area source represents uniform seismicity occurring over a geographical region.

Other parameters (except location) are the same as for PointSource.

count_ruptures()[source]

See openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.count_ruptures() for description of parameters and return value.

Overrides implementation of the point source class just to call the base class one.

get_rupture_enclosing_polygon(dilation=0)[source]

See superclass method for parameter and return value definition.

iter_ruptures()[source]

See openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.iter_ruptures() for description of parameters and return value.

Area sources are treated as a collection of point sources (see openquake.hazardlib.source.point) with uniform parameters. Ruptures of area source are just a union of ruptures of those point sources. The actual positions of the implied point sources form a uniformly spaced mesh on the polygon. Polygon’s method :meth: ~openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.discretize is used for creating a mesh of points on the source’s area. Constructor’s parameter area_discretization is used as polygon’s discretization spacing (not to be confused with rupture surface’s mesh spacing which is as well provided to the constructor).

The ruptures’ occurrence rates are rescaled with respect to number of points the polygon discretizes to.

Simple fault

Module openquake.hazardlib.source.simple_fault defines SimpleFaultSource.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.simple_fault.SimpleFaultSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type, mfd, rupture_mesh_spacing, magnitude_scaling_relationship, rupture_aspect_ratio, temporal_occurrence_model, upper_seismogenic_depth, lower_seismogenic_depth, fault_trace, dip, rake, hypo_list=(), slip_list=())[source]

Simple fault source typology represents seismicity occurring on a fault surface with simple geometry.

Parameters:
  • upper_seismogenic_depth – Minimum depth an earthquake rupture can reach, in km.
  • lower_seismogenic_depth – Maximum depth an earthquake rupture can reach, in km.
  • fault_trace – A Line representing the line of intersection between the fault plane and the Earth’s surface.
  • dip – Angle between earth surface and fault plane in decimal degrees.
  • rake – the direction of hanging wall relative to the foot wall.
  • rupture_slip_direction – Angle describing rupture propagation direction in decimal degrees.
  • hypo_list – Array describing the relative position of the hypocentre on the rupture surface. Each line represents a hypocentral position defined in terms of the relative distance along strike and dip (from the upper, left corner of the fault surface i.e. the corner which results from the projection at depth of the first vertex of the fault trace) and the corresponding weight. Example 1: one single hypocentral position at the center of the rupture will be described by the following array[(0.5, 0.5, 1.0)]. Example 2: two possible hypocenters are admitted for a rupture. One hypocentre is located along the strike at 1/4 of the fault length and at 1/4 of the fault width along the dip and occurs with a weight of 0.3, the other one is at 3/4 of fault length along strike and at 3/4 of fault width along strike with a weight of 0.7. The numpy array would be entered as numpy.array([[0.25, 0.25, 0.3], [0.75, 0.75, 0.7]]).
  • slip_list – Array describing the rupture slip direction, which desribes the rupture propagation direction on the rupture surface. Each line represents a rupture slip direction and the corresponding weight. Example 1: one single rupture slip direction with angle 90 degree will be described by the following array[(90, 1.0)]. Example 2: two possible rupture slip directions are admitted for a rupture. One slip direction is at 90 degree with a weight of 0.7, the other one is at 135 degree with a weight of 0.3. The numpy array would be entered as numpy.array( [[90, 0.7], [135, 0.3]]).

iter_ruptures()[source]

See :meth: openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.iter_ruptures.

See also openquake.hazardlib.source.base.ParametricSeismicSource for description of other parameters.

Raises ValueError:
 If check_fault_data() fails or if rake value is invalid.
count_ruptures()[source]

See :meth: openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.count_ruptures.

get_rupture_enclosing_polygon(dilation=0)[source]

Uses openquake.hazardlib.geo.surface.complex_fault.ComplexFaultSurface.surface_projection_from_fault_data() for getting the fault’s surface projection and then calls its dilate() method passing in dilation parameter.

See superclass method for parameter and return value definition.

  • rupture_area – The area of the rupture to float on the fault surface, in squared km.
  • rupture_length – The target length (spatial extension along fault trace) of the rupture, in km.

Characteristic source

Module openquake.hazardlib.source.characteristic defines CharacteristicFaultSource.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.characteristic.CharacteristicFaultSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type, mfd, temporal_occurrence_model, surface, rake, surface_node=None)[source]

Characteristic source typology represents seismicity occuring on a generic fault surface with seismic events rupturing the entire fault surface independently of their magnitude values.

Characteristic source typology can be used to model individual faults or fault segments that tend to produce essentialy same size earthquakes (see for instance: Schwartz, D. P., K. J. Coppersmith, Fault behavior and characteristic earthquakes: Examples from the Wasatch and San Andreas fault zones, J. Geophys. Res., 89, 5681-5698, 1984)

Parameters:

See also openquake.hazardlib.source.base.ParametricSeismicSource for description of other parameters.

Note that a CharacteristicFaultSource does not need any mesh spacing, magnitude scaling relationship, and aspect ratio, therefore the constructor sets these parameters to None.

NB: if you want to convert a characteristic source into XML, you must set its attribute surface_node to an explicit representation of the surface as a LiteralNode object.

count_ruptures()[source]

See :meth: openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.count_ruptures.

get_rupture_enclosing_polygon(dilation=0)[source]

Uses :meth: openquake.hazardlib.geo.surface.base.BaseSurface.get_bounding_box() and from bounding box coordinates create openquake.hazardlib.geo.mesh.RectangularMesh and then calls openquake.hazardlib.geo.mesh.Mesh.get_convex_hull() to get a polygon representation of the bounding box. Note that this is needed to cope with the situation of a vertical rupture for which the bounding box collapses to a line. In this case the method get_convex_hull() returns a valid polygon obtained by expanding the line by a small distance. Finally, a polygon is returned by calling dilate() passing in the dilation parameter.

See superclass method for parameter and return value definition.

iter_ruptures()[source]

See :meth: openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.iter_ruptures.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.non_parametric.NonParametricSeismicSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type, data)[source]

Non Parametric Seismic Source explicitly defines earthquake ruptures in the constructor. That is earthquake ruptures are not generated algorithmically from a set of source parameters.

Ruptures’ rectonic region types are overwritten by source tectonic region type.

Parameters:data – List of tuples. Each tuple must contain two items. The first item must be an instance of openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.Rupture. The second item must be an instance of openquake.hazardlib.pmf.PMF describing the probability of the rupture to occur N times (the PMF must be defined from a minimum number of occurrences equal to 0)
count_ruptures()[source]

See :meth: openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.count_ruptures.

get_min_max_mag()[source]

Return the minimum and maximum magnitudes of the ruptures generated by the source

Returns:Instance of openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.
iter_ruptures()[source]

Get a generator object that yields probabilistic ruptures the source consists of.

Returns:Generator of instances of :class: ~openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.NonParametricProbabilisticRupture.

Abstract base seismic source

Module openquake.hazardlib.source.base defines a base class for seismic sources.

class openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type)[source]

Base class representing a seismic source, that is a structure generating earthquake ruptures.

Parameters:
  • source_id – Some (numeric or literal) source identifier. Supposed to be unique within the source model.
  • name – String, a human-readable name of the source.
  • tectonic_region_type – Source’s tectonic regime. See openquake.hazardlib.const.TRT.
count_ruptures()[source]

Return the number of ruptures that will be generated by the source.

filter_sites_by_distance_to_source(integration_distance, sites)[source]

Filter out sites from the collection that are further from the source than some arbitrary threshold.

Parameters:
  • integration_distance – Distance in km representing a threshold: sites that are further than that distance from the closest rupture produced by the source should be excluded.
  • sites – Instance of openquake.hazardlib.site.SiteCollection to filter.
Returns:

Filtered SiteCollection.

Method can be overridden by subclasses in order to achieve higher performance for a specific typology. Base class method calls get_rupture_enclosing_polygon() with integration_distance as a dilation value and then filters site collection by checking :meth: containment <openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.intersects> of site locations.

The main criteria for this method to decide whether a site should be filtered out or not is the minimum distance between the site and all the ruptures produced by the source. If at least one rupture is closer (in terms of great circle distance between surface projections) than integration distance to a site, it should not be filtered out. However, it is important not to make this method too computationally intensive. If short-circuits are taken, false positives are generally better than false negatives (it’s better not to filter a site out if there is some uncertainty about its distance).

get_min_max_mag()[source]

Return minimum and maximum magnitudes of the ruptures generated by the source.

get_rupture_enclosing_polygon(dilation=0)[source]

Get a polygon which encloses all the ruptures generated by the source.

The rupture enclosing polygon is meant to be used in all hazard calculators to filter out sources whose ruptures the user wants to be neglected because they are too far from the locations of interest.

For performance reasons, the get_rupture_enclosing_polygon() should compute the polygon, without creating all the ruptures. The rupture enclosing polygon may not be necessarily the minimum enclosing polygon, but must guarantee that all ruptures are within the polygon.

This method must be implemented by subclasses.

Parameters:dilation – A buffer distance in km to extend the polygon borders to.
Returns:Instance of openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.
iter_ruptures()[source]

Get a generator object that yields probabilistic ruptures the source consists of.

Returns:Generator of instances of sublclass of :class: ~openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.BaseProbabilisticRupture.
modify(modification, parameters)[source]

Apply a single modificaton to the source parameters Reflects the modification method and calls it passing parameters as keyword arguments.

Modifications can be applied one on top of another. The logic of stacking modifications is up to a specific source implementation.

Parameters:
  • modification – String name representing the type of modification.
  • parameters – Dictionary of parameters needed for modification.
Raises ValueError:
 

If modification is missing from the attribute MODIFICATIONS.

Parametric Seismic Source generates earthquake ruptures from source parameters, and associated probabilities of occurrence are defined through a magnitude frequency distribution and a temporal occurrence model.

Parameters:
  • mfd – Magnitude-Frequency distribution for the source. See openquake.hazardlib.mfd.
  • rupture_mesh_spacing – The desired distance between two adjacent points in source’s ruptures’ mesh, in km. Mainly this parameter allows to balance the trade-off between time needed to compute the distance between the rupture surface and a site and the precision of that computation.
  • magnitude_scaling_relationship – Instance of subclass of openquake.hazardlib.scalerel.base.BaseMSR to describe how does the area of the rupture depend on magnitude and rake.
  • rupture_aspect_ratio – Float number representing how much source’s ruptures are more wide than tall. Aspect ratio of 1 means ruptures have square shape, value below 1 means ruptures stretch vertically more than horizontally and vice versa.
  • temporal_occurrence_model – Instance of openquake.hazardlib.tom.PoissonTOM defining temporal occurrence model for calculating rupture occurrence probabilities
Raises ValueError:
 

If either rupture aspect ratio or rupture mesh spacing is not positive (if not None).

get_annual_occurrence_rates(min_rate=0)[source]

Get a list of pairs “magnitude – annual occurrence rate”.

The list is taken from assigned MFD object (see openquake.hazardlib.mfd.base.BaseMFD.get_annual_occurrence_rates()) with simple filtering by rate applied.

Parameters:min_rate – A non-negative value to filter magnitudes by minimum annual occurrence rate. Only magnitudes with rates greater than that are included in the result list.
Returns:A list of two-item tuples – magnitudes and occurrence rates.
get_min_max_mag()[source]

Get the minimum and maximum magnitudes of the ruptures generated by the source from the underlying MFD.
