The model is described by Midzi et al. (2019). The seismic source model was developed using a newly updated catalogue and consists of zones of distributed seismicity, while the ground motion logic tree consists of two existing ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs) derived for active shallow crust. The model was originally created for the OpenQuake (OQ) engine.

  • Launch of the Global Model for Earthquake Social Vulnerability | GEM Foundation

    2020 UNDERSTANDING RISK FORUM Launch of the Global Model for Earthquake Social Vulnerability and Resilience (SVR) Maps Press Release Background SVR modelling is an important aspect of not just understanding risk but also in reducing disaster risk at any given scale. SVR modelling can give disaster management professionals, especially at the country level, the ability to anticipate an impact that goes beyond physical damage or casualties from earthquakes. This ability to anticipate can greatly help DRR agencies to prepare and plan on how to address damage to the economy, society and social well-being as a result of disasters. Purpose To present GEM’s global model of earthquake risk, the valuable addition of the Social Vulnerability component into the Global model, and to foster future opportunities and partnerships to reduce Earthquake risk from a global to a local perspective. agenda Thursday, Day 3, 11:00 AM - 12:55 PM GMT +0 / 12:00 PM - 1:55 PM topic Welcome Introduction to GEM Launch of Global Social Vulnerability Map GEM OpenQuake Risk modeling framework Current state of Global Social Vulnerability and Resilience modeling Resilience Performance Scorecard Nepal earthquake resilience performance scorecard Social Vulnerability South America resilience performance scorecard From Risk to Social Vulnerability in Colombia Questions and Answers Panel Discussion Feedback Closing Remarks speaker John Rees (moderator) John Schneider ​ ​ Ana Beatriz Acevedo Christopher Burton ​ ​ ​ Surya Shrestha Jair Torres Miguel Toquica John Rees (moderator) Panelists Christopher Burton Marc Gordon agenda presentations videos product page the SVR component of GEM’s core scientific framework aims to analyze and understand the various socio-economic factors that may exacerbate the impact of an earthquake, including the ability of communities to fully recover. webinar infographic primer Full screen soon

  • Risk Technical Description | Global Eathquake Model Foundation

    Global Earthquake Maps GEM GLOBAL MOSAIC OF RISK MODELS Technical Description READ MORE The Global Seismic Risk Map (v2018.1) comprises four global maps. The main map presents the geographic distribution of average annual loss (USD) normalised by the average construction costs of the respective country (USD/m2) due to ground shaking in the residential, commercial and industrial building stock, considering contents, structural and non-structural components. The normalised metric allows a direct comparison of the risk between countries with widely different construction costs. It does not consider the effects of tsunamis, liquefaction, landslides, and fires following earthquakes. The loss estimates are from direct physical damage to buildings due to shaking, and thus damage to infrastructure or indirect losses due to business interruption are not included. The Global Seismic Hazard Map depicts the geographic distribution of the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) with a 10% probability of being exceeded in 50 years, computed for reference rock conditions (shear wave velocity of 760-800 m/s). The Global Exposure Map depicts the geographic distribution of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The Global Seismic Fatalities Map depicts an estimate of average annual human losses due to earthquake-induced structural collapse of buildings. The results for human losses do not consider indirect fatalities such as those from post-earthquake epidemics. The average annual losses and number of buildings are presented on a hexagonal grid, with a spacing of 0.30 x 0.34 decimal degrees (approximately 1,000 km2 at the equator). The average annual losses were computed using the event-based calculator of the OpenQuake engine, an open-source software for seismic hazard and risk analysis developed by the GEM Foundation. The seismic hazard, exposure and vulnerability models employed in these calculations were provided by national institutions, or developed within the scope of regional programs or bilateral collaborations. These global maps and the underlying databases are based on best available and publicly accessible datasets and models. Due to possible model limitations, regions portrayed with low risk may still experience potentially damaging earthquakes. The GEM Risk Map is intended to be a dynamic product, such that it may be updated when new datasets and models become available. Releases of updated versions of the seismic risk map are anticipated on a regular basis. Additional hazard and risk metrics for each country can be explored at ​ How to use and cite this work ​ Please cite this work as: V. Silva, D. Amo-Oduro, A. Calderon, J. Dabbeek, V. Despotaki, L.

  • Global Earthquake Social Vulnerability | Global Earthquake Model Foundation

    Global Earthquake Maps Global earthquake SOCIAL VULNERABILITY Earthquakes can have adverse impacts that extend beyond physical damage or casualties and can severely damage economies and negatively influence societies and social well-being. The addition of the Social Vulnerability component into GEM’s scientific framework provides the means to analyze and better understand the various socio-economic factors that may exacerbate the impact of an earthquake, or that may affect the ability of communities to fully recover from damaging earthquake events. The global modelling of socio-economic vulnerability consists of three maps that depict spatially varying characteristics that affect the impact and recovery potential of populations from damaging earthquakes. Social Vulnerability The Global Social Vulnerability Map is a composite index that was developed to measure characteristics or qualities of social systems that create the potential for loss or harm. Here, social vulnerability helps to explain why some countries will experience adverse impacts from earthquakes differentially where the linking of social capacities with demographic attributes... Details Economic Vulnerability The Global Economic Vulnerability Map is a composite index that was designed primarily to measure the potential for economic losses from earthquakes due to a country’s macroeconomic exposure.
