The Eastern Asia region is an area with high risk of catastrophic natural disasters such as earthquakes,  tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. In today’s highly globalized  economy, when a major disaster occurs, it can create unpredictable turmoil not just in the affected area but also the rest of the world. Countermeasures against these disasters are crucial for the sustainable development. We believe that continuous efforts to develop an effective international framework to reduce the risk of earthquake, tsunami and volcanic hazards are quite important. The Sumatra earthquake on December 26, 2004 and Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011 clearly show the urgency of developing an information and knowledge system for infrequent natural hazards. The volcanic ash ejected from Eyjafjallajökull eruptions in Iceland on April 2000 caused more than 20,000  commercial  flight  cancellations  a  day  in  Europe,  resulting  to  the  largest  air-traffic shut-down since World War II. The G-EVER (Asia Pacific Region Earthquake and Volcanic Eruption Risk Management) Consortium promotes earthquake and volcanic hazards reduction activities through the collaboration of different research institutes worldwide. The “Eastern Asia Earthquake  and  Volcanic  Hazards  Information  Map”  is  the  first  publication  map  made  by G-EVER Consortium.

The Eastern Asia Earthquake and Volcanic Hazards Information Map is a collaborative product of the G-EVER Promotion Team established in the Geological Survey of Japan, AIST and several geological institutes in Southeast Asia.  The map contains substantial information about geohazards in the area as well as its geology and tectonics, such as: distribution of active faults, earthquake hypocenters and source areas, Holocene volcanoes, calderas, large-scale ignimbrites and ash falls, fatalities in major volcanic eventes, earthquakes and tsunami hazards. This work is accompanied by Explanatory notes that are downloadable here.   The jpg file of the map at 300 dpi is downloadable using this link: 

The fatalities in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are classified by the main cause of death and graphically illustrated so as to facilitate visual understanding of the magnitude of the damage caused by these disasters.  The contents can visualized, consulted and downloaded at

The “Eastern Asia Earthquake  and  Volcanic  Hazards  Information  Map”  is  the  first  map compiled and published by the G-EVER Consortium. In providing valuable knowledge on geological hazards, this document intends to be a powerul outreach tool and a useful source for the defintion of mitigation policies.
