DESCRIPTION

Canada (v.2015) is part of GEM's Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Maps released to the public in December 2018. As part of the mosaic, the seismic hazard, exposure and vulnerability models employed in the calculations were either provided by national institutions, or developed within the scope of regional programs, bilateral collaborations, or by GEM. Click View for details.

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 develop 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.
