Presentations of the EFEHR services webinar available

On 16 December 2021, the EFEHR services webinar took place. More than 150 participants from science and industry received first-hand information from Andrea Rovida (INGV Milan), Roberto Basili (INGV Rome), Graeme Weatherill (GFZ Potsdam), Laurentiu Danciu (Swiss Seismological Service, ETH Zurich) and Helen Crowley (EUCENTRE, Pavia). They guided the participants through the different seismic hazard and risk datasets and tools, including those related to earthquake catalogues, active fault databases and ground motion modelling, and showed how to obtain access to the revised European seismic hazard model and the first openly available European seismic risk model.

The presentations and the recording from the webinar are now available to download:

Register for the EFEHR services webinar

Andrea Rovida (INGV Milan), Roberto Basili (INGV Rome), Graeme Weatherill (GFZ Potsdam), Laurentiu Danciu (Swiss Seismological Service, ETH Zurich) and Helen Crowley (EUCENTRE, Pavia), will guide you through the different seismic hazard and risk datasets and tools, including those related to earthquake catalogues, active fault databases and ground motion modelling, and will show you how to obtain access to the revised European seismic hazard model and the first openly available European seismic risk model. The webinar is dedicated to all scientific and professional users of EFEHR services - sign up now!

The EFEHR services, providing access to the next generation of European seismic hazard and risk models and their underlying tools and datasets, will be available to the scientific and professional community from 16 December 2021. With this pre-release, we aim to gain feedback and carry out any necessary final improvements before we more widely publicise the release of the European seismic hazard and risk models in spring 2022.

When?
Thursday, 16 December 2021
10:00-12:30 (CET)

Where?
Zoom (you will receive the zoom link via email shortly before the webinar)

Further information

Scientists, engineers and other experts across Europe have greatly contributed to the development of the EFEHR data services and models over the last few years. These activities have also been supported by funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, and have been carried out in collaboration with GEM (Global Earthquake Model Foundation) and EPOS (European Plate Observing System).
 
Do you need further explanations, illustrative graphics, or carefully designed maps? Then wait until the full release in spring 2022, when the models and all products, including maps, an explainer video, answers to frequent questions, and additional materials, will become available on the EFEHR website. At this time, the European earthquake hazard and risk models will also be presented to the media and interested citizens.

First EFEHR webinar & General Assembly meeting

First EFEHR webinar & General Assembly meeting

On Thursday 10th September the EFEHR Consortium successfully hosted its first scientific webinar on the European seismic hazard and risk models (ESHM20 and ESRM20), as well as its first General Assembly meeting. The webinar was attended by almost 150 participants and started with an introductory presentation by the Chair of the EFEHR Consortium, Fabrice Cotton, followed by summary presentations on ESHM20 (by Laurentiu Danciu, EFEHR Secretary) and ESRM20 (by Helen Crowley, EFEHR ExeCom member). The slides from the webinar are now available to download from the following links:

If you have any feedback or comments that you would like to share with the teams working on these models, please share them through this Google form.

We plan to summarise all of the comments received and prepare a general response to be shared with the community. Sign up for our newsletter to stay updated and obtain further information of the 2020 European Hazard and Risk Models.

The first General Assembly of the EFEHR Consortium led to the approval of an additional 8 new voting members to the Consortium, and important discussions and decisions related to the EFEHR data policy and the activities of the EFEHR Consortium over the next 12 months. It was agreed that the EFEHR Consortium should promote the use of Creative Commons Attribution licenses (CC-BY 4.0) amongst the community of data providers for the European seismic hazard and risk models. There was also an agreement that the Consortium, and its Executive Committee, should focus over the coming months on releasing ESHM20 and ESRM20 and developing the associated services that will provide access to the products of these models, as well as the individual components and all of the input files and associated documentation. Subsequently, the focus will be shifted towards the resources and services needed for future research and development of these models.
