Earthquake parameters and standardized information for a european-mediterranean bulletin (EPSI)

Objective

Topics aiming at establishing homogeneous procedures for computing earthquakes parameters, and at producing a European seismic bulletin will be addressed. In order to produce a bulletin useful for seismic risk assessment, a unified formula for computing the magnitude of earthquakes occurring in Europe will be proposed. Improved cross-border data exchange and a unified propagation model will contribute to enhance event locations in border regions. Methodologies for event identification (natural vs. artificial events) will be developed. The results of this research will be incorporated, along with other upgrades, in software allowing the fusion of tens of seismic bulletins to produce a European-Mediterranean bulletin on a regular basis. Finally, all data and results gathered over the course of the project, as well as the European-Mediterranean bulletin will be available to the public through the EMSC web site and autoDRM.
