Japan Hazard

Overview

The Global Hazard Mosaic coverage of Japan is based on the 2014 seismic hazard model issued by the Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion (HERP). The model is described by Fujiwara et al. (2009) and Fujiwara et al. (2015). The model has been translated from its original format into the OpenQuake (OQ) engine within a collaboration between the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), Japan, and GEM.
