Researchers produce new map of seismic hazards in Brazil

16 Aug 2017, Agência FAPESP

An updated national map of seismic hazards for Brazil is being developed by researchers at collaborating Brazilian universities. Even with low seismic risk, smaller tremors in Brazil can still cause large-scale damage. The map estimates the probability of future tremors, and the level of vibration they would cause in relation to buildings and infrastructure.
