Catastrophe Risk Management Technology
  • Overview
  • HazInfo
  • CATRisk®HazInfo Coverage
  • HazLab

    Scientist and seismic hazard model developer could benefit from full functionality of CATRisk® hazard assessment tool under HazLab package to develop original seismic hazard model using scientific information and expert judgment. The GIS functionality as well as many other statistical and spatial analytical extensions imbedded inside HazLab allows modeller to:

    • Define seismic sources
    • Study various aspect of spatial and temporal distribution of earthquakes
    • Develop exponential and characteristic frequency-magnitude relations
    • Perform various statistical analyses on the earthquake catalogue (Magnitude conversion, completeness test, de-clustering, …
    • Study fault-specific sources and assignment of rate and magnitude based on slip rate and other input data.
    • Develop logic tree framework for multiple weighted models for almost all sources of epistemic uncertainties (seismic source models, seismogenic parameters, Attenuation relations, …)
    • Model background seismicity using zone free and smoothed seismicity
    • Benefit from a pre-programed library of more than 50 well-known published attenuation relations

    HazLab is a very sophisticated seismic hazard assessment tool. This tool allows the user to develop component of seismic hazard model in a very user friendly and visualized GIS environment. It allows the user to look at multiple modelled components using logic tree algorithm. Logic tree and weighting models could be introduce on multiple seismic source models, multiple seismogenic parameters, multiple choice of regional attenuation functions, multiple choices of 2D and 3D fault rupture planes and smoothing pattern of seismicity.
