COSMOS International Guidelines on Applying Noninvasive Geophysical Methods for Characterizing Seismic Site Conditions.

This project develops practical consensus guidelines and recommendations from the international community on non-invasive geophysical site characterization methods and technical requirements. The product of this project will support research associated with development of future GMPEs that consider site soil conditions. A key aspect of this activity is the implementation of workshops and mechanisms for ongoing collaborative work by international leaders in the field. The collaboration will lead to a set of specific milestones with the ultimate deliverable being a set of final guidelines on the use of non-invasive site characterization techniques. In undertaking these activities, COSMOS is working in Cooperation with the USGS.
