Northern Africa Hazard
The Northern Africa model (NAF) was developed by GEM and is described in Poggi et al. (2020). The model extends from Morocco to Egypt along the Mediterranean coastline. The model consists of a combination of distributed seismicity and faults sources, the former calibrated on occurrence analysis of publicly available earthquake catalogue information, and the latter derived from a thorough evaluation of information from both geological literature and direct analysis of GPS velocity fields.
