Abstract: Within the Italian Project S3 (DPC-INGV) “Shaking seismic scenarios in area of strategic and/or priority interest” the urban area of Gubbio has been chosen as a test site for the calculation of ground shaking scenarios for forecasting purposes. The area has been selected because the urban and / or geomorphologic characteristics of the town of Gubbio and its surrounding are good representatives of many areas in Central Italy: an historical centre of high cultural and artistic value founded on a rocky hillside with new residential and industrial areas developed on the alluvial plain. A great deal of effort has been put in the seismic characterisation of the Gubbio basin, since the general purpose of this work has been the quantification of site effects in intra-mountain basins. Recent studies have shown in fact that significant site effects take place in the Eugubina plain, as evidenced by the generation of surface waves. In particular, the strong motions recorded at the accelerometric station GPB, belonging to the RAN (Rete accelerometrica italiana), installed within the alluvial basin, shows strong amplification and lengthening of significant duration respect to rock sites (Pacor et al; 2007). Several investigations with active and passive seismic survey techniques have been planned and carried out in the plain, also favoured by the intense seismic activity typical of the area (see PS3-Deliverable 21). All data are collected in a GIS herewith enclosed (section 7). The estimates of the empirical transfer functions in the basin have been related to the monitoring activities of 4 temporary transects of seismometric stations (Figure 1.1), operating between June 2005 and May 2006 and described in this Deliverable. The velocemetric records are collected in PS3-Deliverable D26 The amplitude transfer functions for sites corresponding to the stations installed in the basin have been determined by applying three different methods, namely the horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratio (H/V), the standard spectral ratio (SSR) and the generalized inversion technique (GIT).
