Research 22.05.2020 Dr Andrew Smith co-authors paper on multi-hazard risk in the Middle East

Intro Fathom COO Dr Andy Smith collaborated on a Global Earthquake Model (GEM) led study conducting a multi-hazard risk assessment across the Middle East.

The study used a regional probabilistic seismic hazard model from GEM and high resolution, probabilistic flood hazard data from Fathom’s global flood model, Fathom-Global. High-resolution exposure data were intersected with these hazard data, with losses estimated using vulnerability components that considered a range of building characteristics. The study demonstrates the ability to build large scale, multi-hazard models in relatively data poor areas producing data that raise risk awareness and support decision making.

The paper was published in the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction and can be accessed here.
