Abstract 

The paper provides a description of the Web Based Decision Support Tool gWaveLeth for expected damage and loss assessment, as well as for the identification of effective response measures to strong earthquakes. This System takes advantages of GIS gExtremumh, gGloSeisRiskh and gEIG/GEM Infobookh. The gWaveLeth System development is supported by the World Agency on Planetary Monitoring and Earthquake Risk Reduction.


Keywords:
