Where to access earthquake hazard data?

The hazard.EFEHR web platform provides access to interactive tools such as seismic hazard models, products and information. Distributed data, models, products and information are based on research projects carried out by academic and public organisations.

Currently, the seismic hazard models and resources for Europe, including the next generation of the European Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM20), Middle East and the GSHAP global model are available. In addition, the latest update of the Swiss Seismic Hazard Model is also available through this platform. As updates and new information become available, they will be added to the portal.

The scientific data is accessible on the publicly available EFEHR GitLab repository for free download.

If you make use of any data provided by the hazard.EFEHR platform, please observe that it is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY).
