Earthquakes from space: earth observation for quantifying earthquake risks

Old Library, Lloyd’s of London, 1 Lime Street, London, EC3M 7HA

Mon, September 25, 2017, 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM BST

Following the release of a number of new earthquake catastrophe models in key insurance regions, this seminar will investigate how earth observation, satellite and geospatial technologies help to better quantify earthquake risk.

Anyone involved in catastrophe modelling, exposure management, model evaluation, risk management, and anyone affected by the new model upgrades should attend to hear presentations from:

  • Professor Tim Wright – University of Leeds – Monitoring Earth’s dynamic crust from space
  • Gareth Crisford – Earth-i – Optical Satellite Imagery for Earthquake Damage Assessment
  • Rashmin Gunasekera – World Bank – Use of EO satellite information within the Global RApid-post-disaster Damage Estimation (GRADE) Approach
  • Professor Stuart Marsh – University of Nottingham – GEO’s support for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
  • Rachel Holley – CGG NPA – Mapping fault-related displacements using Satellite InSAR: An example across the Los Angeles Basin, USA.
  • Tim Ancheta – RMS – Transforming liquefaction modelling with geostatistics
  • Forbes McKenzie – McKenzie Intelligence Services
