  • Country Model - Global Earthquake Model

    Products Country Model a new model that provides physical damage and financial loss metrics due to earthquake ground shaking hazard for scenario events and probabilistic risk assessment v2022 China Model Overview The China model has been developed by GEM using public sources of information, such as past seismicity, and geodetic and geologic data for the hazard component, combined with exposure and vulnerability data to create the risk model. The hazard component incorporates both faults and area sources. Earthquake occurrence rates on active faults are based on a new tectonic block model derived from the joint inversion of geodetic and geologic data. The risk model provides estimates of risk to residential, commercial and industrial buildings using GEM’s vulnerability models appropriate to Chinese construction practice. GEM has also developed an exposure model that can be used to estimate total losses to the building stock in addition to portfolio losses. GEM extensively collaborated with its private and public partners to test and validate the model against industry standards in order to produce a new model that represents GEM’s view of risk.

  • GEM completes USAID-supported Global Vulnerability Database Project

    Latest News GEM completes USAID-supported Global Vulnerability Database Project READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ The completion of the Global Vulnerability Database project, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) resulted in the development of vulnerability and fragility models for the most common building classes at a global scale. This has considerably addressed the lack of reliable fragility and vulnerability models for many regions of the globe, which are fundamental for seismic risk assessment at various scales (see map below). The project results also contributed significantly to our understanding of seismic risk - giving us scientific insights important for the improvement of building codes around world. "The lack of vulnerability models is undoubtedly the strongest impediment to the understanding of seismic risk at any scale. This project provides not just default functions for places where nothing exists, but also an open framework that can be used to improve existing functions, or develop completely new ones,” Vitor Silva, GEM Risk Coordinator. Within this project, GEM developed a comprehensive catalogue of the most representative building classes by conducting a worldwide survey targeted at experts in the field of structural and earthquake engineering. A supporting web-based application accessible through the OpenQuake-platform at https://platform.openquake.org/building-class/ was also created for this purpose. Currently, the app has collected over 500 entries from 50 different countries. The database is designed to be an open repository of building information, and intended to be continuously revised and improved beyond the project by the scientific community. Data collected from the global survey produced a list of building typologies comprising over 200 classes distributed between masonry (15%), concrete (51%), steel (23%) and wooden (11%) construction.GEM has extensively tested and calibrated the fragility and vulnerability models by computing seismic risk for several countries (e.g. Colombia, Guatemala, Panamá and Nicaragua), and running earthquake scenarios for different nations (e.g. Chile, Greece and Turkey).

  • GEM partners with World Bank

    Latest News GEM partners with World Bank READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM has been successful in receiving grants to participate in three projects recently announced by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction & Recovery (GFDRR) of the World Bank, in partnership with the UK Department of International Development (DFID). The purpose of the projects is to develop a framework for a multi-hazard view of risk. The projects will develop the ‘first set of open and internally consistent data on multiple hazards, exposure, and vulnerability’. Three international consortia will collaborate to develop the data framework, with an initial focus on developing detailed data for Tanzania, together with countries such as Bangladesh, Kyrgyzstan, and Nepal. It is hoped that this framework will form the foundation for future multi-hazard impact and risk assessments. GEM will lead the consortium on the development of the open repository for exposure data and is a partner in the multi-hazard and vulnerability projects, which will be led respectively by the British Geological Survey (a GEM partner) and the University College London (a member of GEM’s global component project on vulnerability). The combined Inception Workshop for these projects will be held at GEM Headquarters in Pavia on 10-11 April. GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS VIDEO 1/0

    Products UCERF3 Product type Model Now DESCRIPTION UCERF3 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 Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3 (UCERF3) is a model of earthquake occurrence for California developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP). The time-independent version of UCERF3 (Field et al., 2013; 2014) has been used for the 2014 update of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps (Petersen et al., 2014). The model has been translated from its original format into the OpenQuake (OQ) engine by GEM.
