This work package aims at providing reliable tools to characterize the seismic input for the specific case of cultural heritage assets. Probabilistic and deterministic methods to assess seismic hazard and ground motion characteristics have been combined with specific models to account for local soil and site effects including topography, soil non-linearity, basin edge effects and other important parameters regarding “source” and “path” effects. A good knowledge about the complexity of surface geology and the complex nature of earthquake generation process has a crucial effect on the reliability of the hazard maps. Numerous and substantial uncertainties characterise all steps of seismic hazard assessment, independently of the method used.
