Presented are the results of recent analyses of strong ground motion data from
subduction zone earthquakes. Several new sets of attenuation relationships are presented for
estimating peak horizontal accelerations and response spectral ordinates. These relationships
were developed from regression analysis of recorded data augmented by numerical ground
motion simulations. Attenuation relationships were developed for rock, shallow, and deep
soil site classifications for both interface (plate boundary) and intraslab (Benioff) earthquakes.
