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.
