EXPO-CAT is a catalog of human exposure to discrete levels of shaking intensity, obtained by correlating Atlas ShakeMaps with a global population database. Combining this population exposure dataset with historical earthquake loss data provides a useful resource for calibrating loss methodologies against a systematically-derived set of ShakeMap hazard outputs. EXPO-CAT is derived from two key datasets: the PAGER-CAT earthquake catalog and the Atlas of ShakeMaps. PAGER-CAT provides accurate earthquake source information necessary to compute reliable ShakeMaps in the Atlas. It also contributes loss information (i.e., number of deaths and injuries) from historical events. Using historical earthquakes in the Atlas and...
The ANSS Comprehensive Catalog (ComCat) contains earthquake source parameters and other products produced by contributing seismic networks. Important digital catalogs of earthquake source parameters (e.g. Centennial Catalog, Global Centroid Moment Tensor Catalog) are loaded into ComCat. New and updated data are added to the catalog dynamically as sources publish or update products. Access to the ComCat is via the online search page, on which a user can select a wide variety of criteria to locate earthquake events of interest. Source Parameters: -amplitude - hypocenter - magnitude - phase data - finite fault - focal mechanism - moment tensor - tectonic summary - regional information Products: - Did You Feel It? -...
PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) is an automated system that estimates the impact of significant earthquakes around the world, informing emergency responders, government and aid agencies, and the media of the scope of the potential disaster. PAGER rapidly assesses earthquake impacts by comparing the population exposed to each estimated shaking intensity level with models of economic and fatality losses based on past earthquakes in each country or region of the world. PAGER sends out alerts based on the estimated range of fatalities and economic losses.
PAGER-CAT incorporates eight global earthquake catalogs and additional auxiliary data to provide comprehensive information for hypocentral locations, magnitudes, and human fatalities, focal mechanisms, the country of origin or the distance to the nearest landmass, local time and day of week, presence of secondary effects (e.g., tsunami, landslide, fire, or liquefaction) and deaths caused by these effects, the number of buildings damaged or destroyed, and the number of people injured or left homeless. The first version of the catalog contains more than 140 fields in which detailed event information can be recorded and currently includes events from 1900 through December 2007, with emphasis on earthquakes since 1973.
