Seismic Hazard Map for Austria

The Section 2.6 "Seismic Hazard and Stress Field" has calculated the Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Map for Austria in the frame of the Projektes HORA (HOchwasserRisikozonierung Austria - Flood Risk Zonation Austria) as agreed with AonRE and the VVO (Austrian Insurance Association).
