NESS is a flat-file of ground-motion parameters and related metadata of manually processed near-source waveforms from moderate-to-large worldwide events.

NESS (v.2.0) is distributed in two '.zip' files:

'NESS2_flat-file.csv' parametric table in .csv format separated by ";", containing elastic spectral acceleration ordinates (5% damped) and other Intensity Measures of ground motion with associated metadata;
'NESS2_flat-file_eBASCO.csv' parametric table in .csv format separated by ";", containing elastic spectral displacement ordinates (SD) and permanent displacement of ground motion with associated metadata calculated using the extended BASeline COrrection processing (eBASCO, D'Amico et al., 2018);

Each zip file contains the parametric table and several dictionaries ('.txt' files) explaining the abbreviations fields of the parametric tables (each dictionary has the same field name).
