Western Africa

Hazard

The Western Africa model (WAF) was developed internally by GEM. The model encompasses the whole Atlantic side of the Africa continent. An ad-hoc homogenised earthquake catalogue was developed based on globally available information, which was used as primary base for seismic occurrence analysis and the subsequent development of the source zonation model.
