The Earthquake Model Central Asia
Responsible: Jochen Zschau
Project Coordinator: Stefano Parolai
Duration: 2011 to 2014
The Earthquake Model Central Asia (EMCA) is a GEM regional program coordinated by the GFZ.
Taking advantage of the COSERICA consortium created during the CASCADE project, EMCA aims at the crossborder assessment of seismic hazard and risk in Central Asia.
The activities are subdivided into “Seismic hazard assessment and Microzonation”, “Seismic Vulnerability”, and “Earthquake Risk”.
A synergy between EMCA and other projects ( MIIC , Progress) involving the GFZ in Central Asia is expected to provide a valuable contribution to the GEM.
