Overview

This report was developed in response to a request by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) for evaluation of seismic monitoring capabilities in the central and eastern United States (abbreviated in this report as CEUS) with an emphasis on meeting current and future needs of the USNRC. This ―Phase II‖ report focuses on specific improvements to earthquake monitoring in the CEUS likely to further the USNRC’s goals for improved understanding of seismic hazards within this region.

This report is not an assessment of the seismic safety of nuclear powerplants (NPPs) in the CEUS. The USNRC is responsible for assessing the seismic safety of individual NPP’s, but based on specific seismic and engineering information not considered in this report.
