This map depicts at the 1:7 700 000 scale a general view of the hazard occurrence and risk potential in Eastern Asia resulting from the geologic and tectonic features of the region and, in a lesser measure, from the impact of human activities. In order to facilitate the representation and legibility of the vast data compiled, two categories of geohazards were defined: events of endodynamic origin such as seismic hazards including tsunamis and volcanic eruptions (sheet 1 of the map), and events of exodynamic origin (sheet 2) such as landslide, coastal erosion/deposition, karst collapse, land subsidence. This map covers ten countries: Cambodia, China, Japan, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The geostructural base map for the oceanic and continental areas, based on the Geological Map of South and East Asia at the 1:5 M scale, (CGMW-UNESCO 1990), has been compiled with reference to the major geologic and plate tectonics setting and features as described in the legend (sheet 3). The explanatory notes include, besides a brief overview of the geology and tectonics of the region, comments by country on the related hazards, together with explanatory figures and tables that complete the data plotted on the map.

This work is the result of an international cooperative programme carried out by the Geological Survey of Japan, within the framework of the Eastern Asia Natural Hazards Mapping Project (EANHMP) and was endorsed by the Coordinating Committee for Coastal and Offshore Geoscience Programme (CCOP) and the CGMW. The aim of this map is to enhance awareness among planners and policy makers of national and regional development, as well as the general public, on natural hazards and their consequences on the socio-economical development of the countries of the region. This work responded also to the objectives of the United Nations International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR).
