We study natural hazards to recognize, to evaluate and to manage past and future hazards. Impressum: http://www.rwth-aachen.de/impressum
The evaluation of natural disasters due to earthquakes is generally perceived as a difficult subject. Furthermore, the problem of earthquake prediction has not yet been solved. Tectonic activity has far-reaching consequences in human social and physical life, considering destructive earthquakes in residential and industrial areas. Therefore, seismic hazard assessment and mitigation is of great concern for the society. The evaluation of tectonically active regions from a geological and paleoseismological point of view contributes to interdisciplinary hazard assessment besides historical and instrumental seismicity studies.
