A site response model has been developed for the European Seismic Risk Model (ESRM20) in order to allow the ground shaking at the surface to be computed on a grid, with 30 arc-seconds resolution, covering all 44 target countries in the model. Several standalone products have emerged during the development of this site response model. This web viewer provides four important datasets that were used in the development of the site model: i) a harmonised map of geological era (based on datasets from the ProMine project, OneGeologyEurope and data from Icelandic Institute of Natural History), ii) a harmonised map of topographic slope (based on the GEBCO 2014 Digital Elevation Model), iii) a map of inferred Vs30 based on topographic slope using the Wald and Allen (2007) approach, iv) a database of Vs30 observations compiled from multiple sources. Whilst the publication describing the European site response model is under preparation, interested readers are referred to this SERA project deliverable for more information.
