Earthquake

Verisk earthquake models leverage local and regional expertise to represent the most advanced understanding of seismic hazard and building vulnerability. Our models help you better prepare for the financial consequences of catastrophic earthquakes.

Get a comprehensive view of seismic hazard

Because relying on historical records alone is insufficient for estimating where future earthquakes will occur and how large they will be, Verisk models also use information from extensive GPS networks to provide insight into where and how seismic stress is accumulating.

Estimate potential damage and losses from tsunamis

In regions with significant tsunamigenic earthquake risk, the models simulate water propagation and inundation to provide the most accurate view of this important source of loss.

Account for the impact of aftershocks

Although typically smaller than a mainshock, aftershocks can increase losses by damaging structures already impacted by an earthquake.

Assess the impact of aftershocks on regional earthquake loss estimation

Capture regional differences in vulnerability

Verisk earthquake models are informed by region-specific construction practices and building codes, damage surveys, and engineering research to more accurately reflect the variability of the building stock.

Capture real-time event analytics

Obtaining reliable information as catastrophes unfold or immediately after they occur is essential for (re)insurers and investors. Our ALERT service provides information on current catastrophic events occurring globally in real time and—for events that meet the threshold—insured loss estimates.
