ESHM2020 Overview

The 2020 Euro-Mediterranean Seismic Hazard Model results from a probabilistic seismic hazard assessment carried out for the Euro-Mediterranean region. It is the successor version of the 2013 Euro-Mediterranean Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM13). You can find general information about the earthquake hazard across Europe on the EFEHR webpage. 

Research teams across Europe have developed the ESHM20 in a cooperative effort through a participatory peer-reviewed process, in collaboration with GEM (Global Earthquake Model Foundation) and EPOS (European Plate Observing System).

ESHM20 considers the most recent input datasets such as earthquake catalogues, active faults or ground motion recordings, scientific knowledge and integrates the latest innovations in seismic hazard assessment.

The scientific data and input models are accessible on the publicly available EFEHR GitLab repository.
