The 2013 European Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM13)

The 2013 European Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM13) is the result of a probabilistic seismic hazard assessment carried out for the Euro- Mediterranean region. ESHM13 was developed within the SHARE Project (Giardini et al, 2014), founded by European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). Additional Information on the SHARE Project is available on the project website.

ESHM13 represents a community consensus hazard model for Europe and it was the first contribution to the global mosaic of seismic hazard models compiled by Global Earthquake Model EM regional programme to be completed.
