Technical documents: summary

The purpose of the TSUMAPS-NEAM project is to provide a regional probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment (PTHA) to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. This assessment deals with tsunamis of seismic origin (Seismic-PTHA, S-PTHA). It is conducted at the scale of the NEAM (North-eastern Atlantic, the Mediterranean and connected seas) region, one of the four regions where the UNESCO-IOC Tsunami Programme has set an Intergovernmental Coordination Group. So, the results are not expected to reach the fine-grain detail necessary for local scale planning; rather, they are designed to be suitable for regional comparative screening and prioritization of site-specific assessments.

The documents below illustrate the overall project design (Stage 1);  the multi-expert uncertainty management protocol (Stage 2 and Stage 3), which is an attempt to formalize how the subjective choices, arising from scientific and technical controversies during the assessment, are dealt with; and the implementation plan (Stage 4) for the hazard calculations. More technical details on methods and specific results of the elicitation experiment are given in the Appendices.
