GSHAP Hazard Maps for South Asia

The map on this page display the seismic hazard for south Asia and were developed using the GSHAP dataset. GSHAP or the Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program was launched in 1992 by the International Lithosphere Program (ILP) with the support of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), and endorsed as a demonstration program in the framework of the United Nations International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (UN/IDNDR). The primary goal of GSHAP was to create a global seismic hazard map in a harmonized and regionally coordinated fashion, based on advanced methods in probabilistic seismic hazard assessments. Available databases and information has been utilized by the ASC to generate the following maps using the freely available Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) software. These maps may be reproduced in print or electronically without removing the ASC's embedded link.
