Global Hazard Maps

The ITIC and NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (ICSU World Data Service for Geophysics, Marine Geology and Geophysics Division) have collaborated to produce global hazard maps for tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanoes. The NGDC manages global geophysical, sea floor, and natural hazards data, including tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanoes.  The Tsunami Sources (English) poster was updated in 2010, 2011, 2014 and in Spanish in 2012.  The Earthquake and Volcano posters were updated in 2010 and 2013.  The Tsunami Sources Icosohedron was updated in 2010, 2012, 2014.   Over history (1610 BC to AD 2016), there have been 1235 confirmed tsunamis, of which 249 have been deadly. 76% occurred in the Pacific Ocean and its marginal seas. 87% of the tsunamis were caused by earthquakes. Map posters and Icosohedrons in hard copy, and high resolution PDFs, are available on request from ITIC.  Lower resolution PDFs are available for downloaded below. 40" x 27" Map Poster Tsunami SourcesEnglish (August 2014)       JPEG     11.73 MB Significant EarthquakesEnglish (July 2013)       JPEG     11.72 MB Significant Volcanic EruptionsEnglish (July 2013)      JPEG     11.95 MB   27.5" x 36" Map Poster Tsunami SourcesSpanish (March 2012)       JPEG     11.4 MB   11x17" Map Poster (2 Pages) Tsunami SourcesEnglish (August…
