New US seismotectonic model for nuclear plants


This isn't 'earth shattering'.  It doesn't do any ground motion calculations.  The news is all hyped up about this, but it's the same old stuff from many years past.

A utility would use this to come up with a ground motion, but then they would use the same old crufty seismic analysis.  It's all rather sad......
