Title: The Global Earthquake History
Title of journal: Earthquake Spectra
Series/Report no.: 2/30 (2014)
Issue Date: 2014
DOI: 10.1193/122013EQS297
Keywords: historical seismology; global seismicity
Abstract: The study of earthquakes from historical sources, or historical seismology, was considered an early priority for the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) project, which commissioned a study of historical seismicity at a global scale. This was “The Global Earthquake History” (GEH) project, led jointly by INGV (Milano, Italy) and BGS (UK). GEH was structured around three complementary deliverables: archive, catalogue, and the web infrastructure designed to store both archive and catalogue. The Global Historical Earthquake Archive (GHEA) provides a complete account of the global situation in historical seismology for large earthquakes. From GHEA, the Global Historical Earthquake Catalogue (GHEC v1.0) was derived: a world catalogue of earthquakes for the period 1000-1903, with magnitude 7 Mw and over. Though much remains to be done, the data here presented show that the compilation of both Archive and Catalogue contribute to an improved understanding of the Global Earthquake History.
