We have the earthquake hazard map of Hungary – Computerworld

-



A major earthquake can have unpredictable consequences due to the vulnerability of critical infrastructures.

The most sensitive areas of Hungary in terms of earthquake risk are presented in the map prepared by the Research Institute of Earth Physics and Space Sciences together with GEOMEGA Kft. using a large amount of geophysical measurement data and satellite earth observations.

THE Research Institute of Earth Physics and Space Science according to his information, the seismotectonic map, which shows the young and active fault lines in Hungary on a national scale, the distribution and nesting mechanism of earthquakes, and the most sensitive areas in terms of earthquake risk, was completed as a result of four years of work.

The model on which the map is based was prepared by experts based on the structure of the earth’s crust, fault lines created by previous earthquakes, and crustal movements. The project was realized with HUF 206 million support from the National Research, Development and Innovation Office.

In the announcement, they explained that Hungary’s earthquake activity is moderate, which, however, does not mean that all earthquakes are of moderate intensity, only that large earthquakes are rare. In the past, the country was hit by several earthquakes that caused serious damage. Based on statistical studies, an earthquake with a magnitude greater than 5 occurs in Hungary on average every 40-50 years.

A major earthquake can have unforeseeable consequences due to the vulnerability of critical infrastructures. It is therefore essential that researchers clearly see the causes and formation of major earthquakes, the process of tectonic movements and their expected consequences.

Earthquake-proof construction is the most effective way to protect against earthquakes. The map will help with this, as it can serve as the basis for both local seismic risk analyzes and national-scale infrastructural strategic planning.

The project, which started on January 1, 2019 and ended on December 31, 2022, was realized with HUF 206,358,710 support provided by the National Research Development and Innovation Fund, financed by the tender program of the National Excellence Program.
