Computer modelled synthetic earthquake catalogues have been tested and proven to replicate the statistics of natural earthquakes.
In order to overcome the limitations of historical earthquake records, researchers in the Fault Model Construction project are building a catalogue of ‘synthetic’ earthquakes using new technology and methods. Before these catalogues can be relied on by hazard and risk modellers, they need to be rigorously tested and tuned.
We aim to ensure the reliability of the synthetic catalogue by working closely with the researchers creating it to:
Our goal is to provide hazard and risk modellers with a reliable earthquake catalogue that can be used to develop improved earthquake and tsunami hazard models.
