Description
Abstract
This dataset contains contours of probabilistic ground motions for all 44 Idaho counties. The data are taken from the 2008 Gridded Dataset of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps (NSHM). The data have been contoured in units of 0.1 g. They show the spectral acceleration at 5 Hz Hz expected at probabilities of 2% over 50 years. These data are used in building codes.

Purpose
Assist Idaho counties with mitigation of earthquake hazards by providing USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps for each county.

Supplementary Information
USGS National Seismic Hazard data was used to generate contours for  5Hz (0.2 Second) SA, 2% PE in 50 years
