The first global earthquake risk

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:54 am

The first global earthquake risk map has been released by the Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program. Several years in the making, the map has few suprises, but does help drive the point home that half of the world’s largest cities are in an area of high risk. I wish there was a much larger version of the map there, though. It looks like South Carolina is in an earhquake zone, but I can’t really see.
