The spatial variation of scalar measures of earthquake ground motion, such as peak ground acceleration, strong motion duration, and root-mean-square amplitude, along with various spectral parameters (period, bandwidth factor) are examined for several earthquakes recorded by the Taiwan SMART-1 and Japan Higashi-Matsuyama (HMY) Arrays. Moving-window spectral density functions and related time-dependent spectral parameters indicating the evolving ground motion intensity and frequency content, are also calculated and interpreted for events recorded at both sites.
