# Event Based PSHA#

Analysis Input data for the Event-Based PSHA - as in the case of the Classical *Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis*
calculator - consists of a PSHA Input Model and a set of calculation settings.

The main calculators used to perform this analysis are:

*Logic Tree Processor*The Logic Tree Processor works in the same way described in the description of the Classical

*Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis*workflow (see Section Classical PSHA).*Earthquake Rupture Forecast Calculator*The Earthquake Rupture Forecast Calculator was already introduced in the description of the PSHA workflow (see Section Classical PSHA).

*Stochastic Event Set Calculator*The Stochastic Event Set Calculator generates a collection of stochastic event sets by sampling the ruptures contained in the ERF according to their probability of occurrence.

A Stochastic Event Set (SES) thus represents a potential realisation of the seismicity (i.e. a list of ruptures) produced by the set of seismic sources considered in the analysis over the time span fixed for the calculation of hazard.

*Ground Motion Field Calculator*The Ground Motion Field Calculator computes for each event contained in a Stochastic Event Set a realization of the geographic distribution of the shaking by taking into account the aleatory uncertainties in the ground- motion model. Eventually, the Ground Motion Field calculator can consider the spatial correlation of the ground-motion during the generation of the Ground Motion Field.

*Event-based PSHA Calculator*The event-based PSHA calculator takes a (large) set of ground-motion fields representative of the possible shaking scenarios that the investigated area can experience over a (long) time span and for each site computes the corresponding hazard curve.

This procedure is computationally intensive and is not recommended for investigating the hazard over large areas.
