The project "Seismic Risk Analysis Study for Honduras" was initiated in April 1978 at the request of Motor Columbus Consulting Engineers Inc. The basic objectives of the project are as follows: (i) Accumulate and compile the seismological and geological information about the seismic environment of Honduras. (ii) Based on the available information, develop the seismic source modeling for the country and obtain the recurrence relation­ ships with the associated uncertainties for all the sources. (iii) Based on the information developed in (ii) above, obtain the maximum credible event for the El Cajon region. (iv) With proper development of attenuation relationship, obtain the seismic hazard map for the whole country of Honduras. (v) Develop the acceleration zone graphs (PGA vs. Return Period) for major population centers as well as for the various specific sites in the El Cajon region. This report presents the results of the above objectives.
