The 2020 European Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM20) provides an update on the earthquake hazard assessment of the Euro-Mediterranean region. ESHM20 has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 730900 of the SERA-Project (www.sera-eu.org). It is the successor version of the 2013 Euro-Mediterranean Seismic Hazard Model (ESHM13).
Research teams across Europe have developed the ESHM20 in a cooperative effort through a participatory peer-reviewed process, in collaboration with GEM (Global Earthquake Model Foundation) and EPOS (European Plate Observing System).
A fully probabilistic framework was adopted in the hazard model implementation, and all datasets and inputs are fully cross-border harmonised. The scientific data and input models are accessible on the publicly available EFEHR GitLab repository.
