Quality Assurance

EFEHR hazard web services provide access to regional seismic hazard models, components, input datasets and results. All datasets distributed via the EFEHR webservices have been rigorously peer reviewed in accordance with both academic and industry standards for probabilistic frameworks. 

Quality assurance is ensured within this framework by implementing multiple sanity checks of data format consistency, parameter and data accuracy, model robustness, and computational workflow precision. Scholarly articles and technical reports provide extensive documentation for the regional hazard models.
