Data used to calculate the results presented in this article by Aochi, Douglas and Ulrich (2017). The data consist of simulated ground motions from a various hypothetical earthquakes (and two real events) in the Marmara Sea region. The data consists of three compressed files containing text files. contains text files (with extension .pgv) with station locations and simulated peak ground velocities (PGV) for each of the earthquakes. Each line has the following format:
Number of station, x coordinate (in m), y coordinate (in m), z coordinate (in m), shear-wave velocity at station (in m/s), PGV in x direction, PGV in y direction, PGV in z direction, PGV (3d vectorial combination), PGV (2d vectorial combination), PGV (2d geometric combination) contains text files (with extension .dist and .dist2) with station locations and hypocentral distances for each of the events. Each line has the following format:
Name/number of station, longitude, latitude, distance to the rupture (in km)
Also included is a text file called station5_vs.txt with the coordinates (in x, y and z in m) of the various stations and their shear-wave velocities (in m/s) contains text files (with extension .spc) with simulated spectral accelerations (in m/s^2) for structural periods of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50s for some earthquakes and stations. Each line has the following format:
StationID, Station name, component direction, structural period (in s), spectral acceleration (in m/s^2).
