Short summary
For regions with few strong motion records, a seismology-based method is developed to predict PGAs with parameters from small earthquake data, recorded by regional monitoring networks, for Sichuan and Yunnan regions, China. The results are compared with limited strong motion data. Most fit well, except the case of Mw7.0 in Sichuan, since there are no observed data from larger events. The parameters are adopted in strong motion synthesis at two near-fault stations during the Wenchuan Earthquake.
