520    This book presents a summary of the important outcomes of 
       the SIGMA project related to all aspects of Probabilistic 
       Seismic Hazard Assessment: source characterization, rock 
       motion characterization, site response characterization, 
       and hazard calculations, with for all of them emphasis on 
       the treatment of uncertainties. In recent years, attempts 
       have been made to identify and quantify uncertainties in 
       seismic hazard estimations for regions with moderate 
       seismicity. These uncertainties, for which no estimation 
       standards exist, create major difficulties and can lead to
       different interpretations and divergent opinions among 
       experts. To address this matter, an international research
       project was launched in January 2011, by an industrial 
       consortium composed of French and Italian organizations. 
       This program, named SIGMA (Seismic Ground Motion 
       Assessment) lasted for five years and involved a large 
       number of international institutions. This book is 
       intended for instructors running courses on engineering 
       seismology, graduate students in the same field and 
       practicing engineers involved in Probabilistic Seismic 
       Hazard Analyses
