Global Multihazard Frequency and Distribution
Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_MULTI_HFD_1.0


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 infrastructure. This data set is the result of collaboration among the Columbia University Center for Hazards and Risk Research (CHRR), International Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank, and Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).

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
