OpENQUAKE-engine
is an open-source software
for seismic hazard and risk assessment

It runs on Linux, macOS and Windows, on laptops, workstations, standalone servers and multi-node clusters. DOI: 10.13117/openquake.engine

The OpenQuake online training is designed for an audience with a diverse background and expertise. Participants will learn the main concepts of earthquake risk assessment, along with the basic features of the engine. 


The training activities have been tailored for beginner users, and are divided into four modules that cover different types of calculations using the OpenQuake-engine. 

Each module is approached from a technical and practical perspective. It includes a theoretical introduction, followed by step-by-step examples that help to consolidate the concepts, as well as exploring the OpenQuake tools for each type of calculation.

The OpenQuake online training initiative is part of the TREQ project activities, led by the GEM Foundation and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
