For the ESRI User Conference 2001 in San Diego, seven HAZUS scenarios were prepared.
The study region was roughly defined by 1,000,000 population in the San Jose, California area,
also known throughout the western world as Silicon Valley. All seven modeled earthquakes had
moment magnitude M6.8 and occurred either on recognized active faults or on meaningfully
selected high-risk scenarios of interest to business continuity planners who care about viable
"worst case" situations.

From roughly west to east these are depicted with red arrows indicating their relative
impacts on four graphs:

1) Estimated Deaths by scenario
2) Debris Megatons by scenario
3) Displaced Households by scenario
4) Total Loss (1996 Dollars) by scenario

Clicking on either the scenario name or graph will take you to a small view of the poster, with
three maps on each scenario's poster:

a) Peak Ground Displacement due to liquefaction
b) Spectral Acceleration at 3 Hz (0.3 second period)
c) Spectral Velocity at 1 Hz (1 second period)

When you see the small view of the poster, clicking on each map will display a larger view
of that modeled ground motion. The Peak Ground Displacement due to liquefaction has been
merged with 1-meter USGS Orthophoto Quarter-Quad base map data from 1996 imagery.
