This study is a trial implementation of the Senior Seismic Hazard Analysis Committee (SSHAC) guidance. As part of the project additional guidance was developed for performing a Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA). The trial project tested the issue of development of the seismic zonation and seismicity models for 2 sites: Watts Bar and Vogtle. It was found that the uncertainty generated by disagreements among experts could be considerably reduced through interaction and discussion of the data, and by concentrating on the elements common to all experts' interpretations
