Abstract

825 earthquakes of M >= 7
87 studies supplying the most reliable input datasets from the archive

The archive and catalogue were developed by an international consortium, comprising Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) and the British Geological Survey (BGS), in collaboration with experts from around the globe. Principal Investigators Paola Albini and Roger Musson led the effort, in collaboration with Augusto Antonio Gomez Caprera, Mario Locati, Andrea Rovida, Massimilliano Stucchi and Daniele Viganò, the core group of the experts who contributed. The project benefitted from the contributions from many scientists from around the globe. See below for a full list of contributors.

Purpose

Only by working together on a global scale can earthquake hazard and risk assessment advance, as critical input for decisions to mitigate and reduce earthquake risk. The Global Historical Earthquake Catalogue and Archive provide a global starting point for continuous improvement of seismicity both for science and concrete applications, especially in regional contexts.
