How does the peak acceleration of an earthquake change over distance and altitude?
I'm currently researching the 2015 Nepal earthquake for school and the effects it had at the top of Mt. Everest. I have strong motion data from 4 sites across Kathmandu (including a USGS site) however they all have different time-acceleration and time-velocity data. Is there any way to use the seismic data of one location and apply it to a location 150-200km away? How could I change the data publicly available in Kathmandu Valley and make it relevant to the summit of Mt. Everest?
