Darlington Nuclear Panel Seismicity Discussion


For those who like something meaty with their morning Timmy's, you can read the transcript from page 36.  They agree that the 1 in 500 earthquake is an M6 for Toronto.  I put it at M6.5, but the uncertainties swallow all estimates.  Because we expect these earthquakes to boom off at the same point every 500 years, like Japan, the more remote odds used in nuclear plant (1 in 10,000) pretty well give the same result.
