Synthetic Seismogram Based Deterministic Seismic Zoning for the Hungarian Part of the Pannonian Basin

—Deterministic seismic hazard computations have been done for the Hungarian part of the Pannonian basin within the framework of a cooperation of five countries. Synthetic seismograms have been computed by the modal summation method up to 1 Hz in order to determine the expected maximum displacement (D MAX), velocity (V MAX) and the design ground acceleration (DGA) on a 0.2°× 0.2° grid. DGA values have been estimated from the seismograms by using the standard.¶This investigation justified the suspicion that a considerable part of seismic hazard of Hungary comes from the seismogenic zones of the neighbouring countries. The highest DGA reaches a value as high as 0.14 g (which corresponds approximately to the VIII intensity degree in the MSK-64 scale). Among the six largest cities of Hungary, three art particularly subject to a high seismic risk. Greater acceleration values have been found for the cities of Szeged and Debrecen than was expected before this study.
