The European Database of Seismogenic Faults

The European Database of Seismogenic Faults (EDSF) was designed as "work in progress", and as such it is open to later additions and improvements. For these reasons and due to its intrinsic nature, EDSF cannot be guaranteed to be complete, accurate and updated in any part, and will be subjected to successive revisions. Although we make every possible effort to supply the best available information, no warranty, expressed or implied, is provided as to the accuracy and reliability of the data supplied in EDSF. Users are invited to consider the inherent epistemic uncertainty of such a database in earthquake-related hazard analyses (PSHA, PTHA, PFDHA). We recall that EDSF was designed for analyses at the scale of a continent (the Euro-Mediterranean region) and that it is thus necessary to add local and site-specific investigations when using EDSF data for studies at more local scales. Users are also cautioned to consider carefully the nature of EDSF content before using it for decisions that concern personal or public safety or in relation with business involving substantial financial or operational consequences.
