Meanwhile, after the launching and presentation, a workshop was held to highlight the importance of regulating the building designs based on the ground conditions on site. We would like to hear from you. FaultFinder was developed to showcase the location of active faults in the Philippines in one platform. Copies of the of the maps were also given out to the representatives of LGUs, Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines ASEPgovernment agencies, academe and atls organizations present during the event.

The use of derived 1: Accessibility key for redirecting to homepage. Requests for ground rupture hazard assessment as well as lectures for earthquakes and earthquake phivopcs also increased dramatically following the release of the Atlas. The Metro Cebu Site Response Atlas is a detailed compilation of phivolcz ground motion and site response hazard maps that would help increase the seismic resiliency of both residential and establishments located within Metro Cebu.

pnivolcs The VFS Atlas not only shows location of active faults but also identifies fissures due to groundwater extraction in some portions of Muntinlupa, Cavite and Laguna. The participants were given exercises to identify the ground conditions on site using the Metro Cebu Site Response Atlas and to estimate the natural period of buildings to determine existing structures that may be vulnerable to ground shaking amplification.

There are testable success criteria for each guideline. Compliance to these criteria is measured in three levels: There are about 30 active fault systems in the Philippines from where earthquakes may originate.


These maps provide information to understand the ground motion response of Metro Cebu in the event of pphivolcs earthquake. Active faults shown in the application are results of various active fault mapping projects conducted by PHIVOLCS or in collaboration with international partners since the s.

Following the Luzon Earthquake, Phivolcx increased its efforts to prepare and educate the public on seismic hazards, particularly in areas with high population densities, important infrastructures, and other elements-at-risk. Ground rupture hazard may be the most difficult to avoid because no engineering interventions have yet been developed to prevent this. The summit served as a venue to expand the partnership between the government and its stakeholders in the private sector to incorporate atlaz resilience and further realise their roles and enabling the whole of society approach in Disaster Risk Reduction.
