This hazard data delivery is derived from the Impact Forecasting Earthquake catastrophe model.
The Impact Forecasting Earthquake hazard and risk data covers 31 countries. The data is derived from the Impact Forecasting earthquake models which have been built over a number of years by the team in collaboration with internationally recognised seismologists and earthquake engineers at a number of academic institutions and agencies. The models are developed for individual countries and provide hazard and risk scores. The original model produced hazard maps in terms of MMI. MMI values have been converted to PGA using the relationship of Wald, et al. (1999).
