Global Seismic Hazard Map
Produced by the Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program (GSHAP), a demonstration project of the UN/International Decade of Natural Disaster Reduction, conducted by the International Lithosphere Program. Global map assembled by D. Giardini, G. Grünthal, K. Shedlock, and P. Zhang, 1999
This may be the first comprehensive global map of “seismic hazard” based on a consistent definition. Seismic hazard is defined in purely geophysical terms.
On the map, the colors define different hazard zones, in each of which the probability of there being a certain level of ground acceleration in the next 50 years is at least 10%.
The Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program (GSHAP) was launched in 1992 by the International Lithosphere Program (ILP) with the support of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), and endorsed as a demonstration program in the framework of the United Nations International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (UN/IDNDR). The GSHAP project terminated in 1999.
