Developing Earthquake Scenarios

Developing Earthquake Scenarios


The NEHRP Developing Scenarios project was created to guide communities through the process of developing and using effective earthquake scenarios. Scenarios can be powerful planning tools that help communities understand and plan for the future, telling the story of a defined earthquake and its specific impacts.

Products from the NEHRP Developing Scenarios project include tools and suggestions to help communities through the process of scenario development that provides a wide range of ideas and types of earthquake scenarios–from very simple to elaborate. Products are meant to be particularly useful to jurisdictions and organizations that do not have access to a lot of resources.
