A consortium of 11 organisations proposes a research project involving international cooperation: they aim at using earth observation data to develop a generic methodology able to help experts build vulnerability and hazard impact maps associated with tsunamis. Involving Morocco and Bulgaria, GEOSCIENCES will coordinate the design and development of this vulnerability map creation technique which involves intrinsic vulnerability variables of systems facing a hazard (types of building, categories of inhabitants, ...), secondary environment vulnerability variables (location of buildings in old areas, access conditions, ...) and crisis organisations vulnerability variables which shape efficient rescue operations (enhance or inhibit actions near the impacted regions). The notion of hazard scenario will be revisited with end-users (including Turkey) and players in countries recently impacted by coupled earthquakes/tsunamis events.
