Description

First release of supplementary files for running probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) MATLAB codes for Malawi as uploaded to Github at: https://github.com/jack-williams1/Malawi_PSHA

Includes both input files for performing PSHA and output ground motions for plotting PSHA results.

Files are:

malawi_Vs30_active.txt: Input USGS slope-based Vs30 values for Malawi (Wald and Allen 2007)EQCAT_comb.mat: MSSD Direct catalog for all possible rupture weightings (stored as MATLAB variable)GM_MSSD_em_20220302: Ground motions for plotting PSHA maps (stored as MATLAB variable)GM_MSSD_em_20220302.mat: Ground motions needed for plotting PSHA-site analysis figures (stored as MATLAB variable)mssd_comb.mat: Matlab file for combined MSSD Direct and Adapted MSSD catalogs (stored as MATLAB variable)MSSD_Catalog_Adapted_em.mat: Adapated MSSD event catalog (stored as MATLAB variable)syncat_bg.mat: Areal source stochastic event catalog (stored as MATLAB variable)

Further descriptions of these files and how to use them are provided on Github. The PSHA is described in:
