 ===== Method ===== ===== Method =====
 The PMC method allows to compute the detection probabilities of seismic events for any given magnitude at any given location and time. It is solely based on empirical data, mainly the earthquake catalog including pick information. The method avoids the assumptions made in classical completeness estimate methods based on the Gutenberg-Richter distribution or in modeling approaches. Unlike the classical methods, it can also provide completeness estimates for seismically inactive regions and provide the user with very detailed completeness changes over time. The PMC method allows to compute the detection probabilities of seismic events for any given magnitude at any given location and time.
