Kuanshi,

That makes sense. I would be interested in having R2D be able to run a series with different scenarios for each job. Ideally, a distribution would be useful so when choosing minimum and maximum magnitudes, they have associated frequencies which could reflect the probabilities of various events, but even just a uniform likelihood that each ground motion map comes from some magnitude event within those bounds would be useful.

The way I am using R2D now to simulate ground motions, it seems I need to run scenarios one-by-one and set the bounds from e.g. 7.0 to 7.2 if I want a ~M7.1 event and need to run multiple jobs if I want events reflecting magnitudes between 7.0 and 8.5. Essentially, I am finding liquefaction probabilities and want to know its dependence on the earthquake magnitude along with other parameters, so I want a distribution of magnitudes.

Ultimately, it would be useful to be able to put in a probability distribution so the output ground motions, if running a large enough number, would reflect the likelihood of the events themselves.

Let me know what you think would be possible or if you have other suggestions of how I can use the tool as-is to get these types of outputs more efficiently.

Thanks,

Emily
