Ethiopia earthquake hazard

Primary tabs

These seismic data were created by a consortium formed of Risk Engineering and Design (RED) and Evaluación de Riesgos Naturales (ERN), as part of a multi-hazard national risk assessment and risk profile development, conducted by GFDRR Innovation Labs. This contributes to GFDRR’s implementation of the Africa Disaster Risk Assessment and Financing Program, in turn part of the ACP-EU funded programme “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities”. The probabilistic seismic hazard analysis is based on the ISC-GEM global instrumental catalog, NEIC (U.S. Geological Survey) catalog, and GCMT earthquake catalog. Ground Motion Prediction Equations appropriate to the extensional tectonic regime and stable continental areas within in the region are used, with VS30 soil amplification data. The PSHA is computed using the CRISIS2015 model. These data are created as part of a set of three countries (Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda).
