SEISMICITY ANALYSIS

The term seismicity refers to the number of earthquakes of any size that have occurred in a large region over a prolonged period in the past. Knowledge of seismicity is essential for assessing the seismic hazard especially for developing countries like India where destruction and deaths due to earthquakes are accentuated due to shoddy civil constructions. The economic and social effects of earthquakes can be reduced through a comprehensive assessment of the seismic hazard risk for seismic prone areas. Such a study would lead to an increase in public awareness, with a consequent upgrading of the existing buildings and engineering work, as well as reliable earthquake resistant designs for new structures.
