Abstract

In the Cities Project Perth, GA is developing a multi-hazard risk assessment of the Perth metropolitan area. One of the main objectives of the Project is to develop an earthquake hazard and risk model for this area. The hazard model is developed using informaiton about earthquakes, the geology and the local soil characteristics of the region. As part of this process, we will develop several earthquake scenarios with events originating at specific locations in the region. To define an appropriate model of seismicity, the Cities Project initiated an expert debate to discuss and to formulate geological and seismological parameters for the Southwest Seismic Zone and the area around Perth. The debate was followed by a workshop in December 2002 in Canberra where the seismicity model of SW WA was ultimately defined. Further discussion was held following the workshop, culminating in an agreed seismicity model for the region.
