Efficient stochastic computational framework for estimating and updating earthquake fatalities, An
Following an earthquake it is crucial to estimate the true scope of impact in terms of fatalities and damage as quickly as possible for efficient post-earthquake response and recovery. The USGS Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response (PAGER) model is the state-of-the-art for rapid loss estimation following any major earthquake anywhere in the world. In particular, the PAGER model can provide estimates of the total loss within about 20 minutes after the event based on estimates of population, shaking intensity, and the vulnerability of the population to such shaking in the affected ...
