<< Back to search results

 

2015

The project will develop the first homogeneous region-wide long-term Probabilistic earthquake-induced Tsunami Hazard Assessment (PTHA) for the coastlines of the North East Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and connected seas, and trigger a common tsunami-risk management strategy in the region.

These results will be achieved through:

  • realization of state-of-the-art PTHA with full uncertainty treatment;
  • review process with international experts;
  • production of the PTHA database and maps;
  • publicity of results through an awareness raising and education phase, and a capacity building phase. The PTHA products can serve as a basis for future national PTHA efforts and be the first step to include tsunamis in multi-hazard risk assessments.
