Global Earthquake Hazard Frequency and Distribution

Description
Global Earthquake Hazard Frequency and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid utilizing Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) Earthquake Catalog data of actual earthquake events exceeding 4.5 on the Richter scale during the time period 1976 through 2002. To produce the final output, the frequency of an earthquake hazard is calculated for each grid cell, and the resulting grid cells are then classified into deciles (10 classes consisting of an approxiamately equal number of grid cells). The greater the grid cell value in the final output, the higher the relative frequency of hazard posed by earthquakes. This data set is the result of collaboration among the Columbia University Center for Hazards and Risk Research (CHRR) and Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
