Summary
Abstract: Global Earthquake Hazard Frequency and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid utilizing Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) Earthquake Catalog data of actual earthquake events exceeding 4.5 on the Richter scale during the time period 1976 through 2002. To produce the final output, the frequency of an earthquake hazard is calculated for each grid cell, and the resulting grid cells are then ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a means of assessing the relative distribution and frequency of global earthquake hazard.

ISO Topic Category
Quality The Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) provides tabular data of earthquake occurrences from 79 to 2002 that were greater than 4.5 on the Richter scale. Each occurence is georeferenced and there is a one occurrence-one record method of data collection. These occurrence records are transformed into a coverage of georeferenced points. A 2.5 minute grid overlays the earthquake occurrence points. ... View entire text
