Developing new approaches to earthquake hazard assessment and forecasting
A new generation European hazard map has been established by considering an up-to-date earthquake catalogue and ground motion models and applying the new methodology of seismic hazard assessment called the hybrid zoneless approach. To build up a hazard map according to this approach, the source parameters acquired from earthquake catalogue and large-scale zones based solely on the large-scale geological architecture are the only inputs of this approach. Because of the minor model assumptions for the hybrid zoneless approach, it provides a suitable basis for application to automatically performed seismic hazard assessment in regular time steps accounting for updated earthquake catalogue in the future as it is part of NERIES JRA2
