Description

The first version of the South America Model (v2016.0.0) was developed in the framework of the SARA project (SARA project v1.0, Garcia et al., 2017) funded by the Swiss Re Foundation and benefits of the contribution of an important group of South American Institutions.

 

Since the original version, several significant updates have been made to the model by the GEM hazard team, leading to the latest release (v2020.1.0), which was used in the computation of the 2023 Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Maps.

 

This model covers the whole South American continent, with the exception of the Faulkland and the Galapagos Islands. Panama and the northeastern part of the Caribbean have been updated using newer information from the CCARA project, a GEM collaboration project funded by USAID.
