Best practice of macroseismic intensity assessment applied to the earthquake catalogue of southwestern Germany

Wolfgang Brüstle, Uwe Braumann, Silke Hock & Fee-Alexandra Rodler
The earthquake catalogue of southwestern Germany for the last millennium now contains about 30,000 digital macroseismic intensity data points (IDPs). Intensity assessments are based mainly on primary sources using the European Macroseismic Scale 1998 (EMS). The article describes a guideline for best practice of conventional macroseismic evaluation in application to historical and modern-time earthquakes in SW-Germany. Suitability of various diagnostics for intensity assessment is discussed. Assumptions to estimate damage grades and vulnerability classes of buildings...
