Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

A study was performed on seismic hazard assessment in the State of Kuwait. The historical and instrumental seismicity data in the Kuwait area and its vicinity were compiled to form the base earthquake catalogue. The main finding of the study was an iso-acceleration map for the State of Kuwait which forms the basis for the evaluation of the seismic hazard.
