Bay Area Living Earthquake Risk Model
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute
Develop a framework and pilot project(s) for an Web-based, secure data repository and modeling system for evaluating earthquake risk for entire communities and improving understanding of potential earthquake losses and recovery times. The modeling tool also will be used to evaluate the effects of risk management decisions/approaches on future losses and recovery.
Intended users of the tool include emergency managers, engineers, scientists, financial/insurance professionals, planners and building officials, and others interested in evaluating and communicating earthquake risk, promoting risk reduction, prioritizing mitigation, and implementing mitigation programs.
Tentatively: April 2006
Online, Web-based model
Modeling tool will be used to characterize current earthquake risks, and as a tool for planning and evaulating risk reduction approaches.
