Summary
Abstract: Global Multihazard Frequency and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid presenting a simple multihazard index based solely on summated single-hazard decile values. The hazards of interest include cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and volcanoes. This data set is further enriched by the inclusion of data pertaining to population, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and transportation ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide insight into the frequency and distribution of multihazard events.

Quality Global Multihazard Frequency and Distribution is a combination of seven surfaces. These surfaces include each of the frequency and distribution deciles of the six hazards considered in the study (cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and volcanoes) of which only the top three deciles, the most hazardous, were retained (deciles 8-10). The seventh surface is a global decile of ... View entire text
