Short summary
In the Metropolitan District of Quito is located on or very close to five segments of reverse blind faults. The city is divided into five areas: south, south-central, central, north-central and north. For each of the urban areas, elastic response spectra are calculated considering the maximum magnitude. Subsequently, the recurrence period of earthquakes of maximum magnitude are presented.
