SUIhaz15 - the Seismic Hazard Model for Switzerland 2015

SUIhaz15 is the Seismic Hazard model for Switzerland of 2015, developed by the Swiss Seismological Service (Schweizerischer Erdbebendienst SED) at ETH Zürich. It replaces the Swiss Seismic Hazard model of 2004. General information about the Swiss seismic hazard can be found on the SED webpages.

SUIhaz15 is the result of a state-of-the-art probabilistic seismic hazard assessment process, incorporating information about geology and tectonics, earthquake occurrence and earthquake rate models, geodetic strain, historical seismicity and macroseismic information according to the current state of scientific knowledge. It was calculated using the GEM OpenQuake engine.
