China: composite hazard map

Original title: China: natural hazard risks

This map illustrates China's exposure to seismic, volcanic and tropical storm hazard.

Earthquake intensity zones indicate where there is a 20% probability that degrees of intensity indicated will be exceeded in 50 years; tropical storm intensity zones indicate where there is a 10% probability of a storm of this intensity striking in the next 10 years.

The map is based on data provided by: UN Cartographic Section, Global Discovery, FAO, Smithsonian Institute, Pacific Disaster Center, UNISYS, Munich Reinsurance Group.
