Canada (v.2015)

Hazard

The Global Hazard Mosaic coverage of Canada uses Canada's 5th Generation Seismic Hazard Model (Halchuk et al., 2015), produced by Natural Resources Canada (NRC), in order to develp the 2015 National Building Code of Canada. The model was originally developed for GSCFRISK software, and was subsequently converted into the OpenQuake (OQ) engine format by NRC. Small, additional adjustments were made by the GEM Secretariat in order to fit the mosaic criteria.
