Seismic hazard microzonation studies have emerged as major tools towards our efforts for preparedness and mitigation of losses due to earthquakes. 'Seismic hazard microzonation' is a process of classifying a region into zones of relatively similar exposure to various earthquake-related effects and has emerged as a major tool towards providing user-friendly, GIS-based and site-specific hazard and risk related information products to enable appropriate planning of pre- and post- disaster management strategies. The SHRA unit of NCS has the mandate to generate and disseminate user-friendly GIS-based and site-specific hazard and risk - related information products to enable appropriate planning of pre- and post disaster management strategies. The Centre has completed microzonation of Delhi region on 1:10,000 scale and played a key role in various studies relating to the seismic microzonation of other cities, such as, Jabalpur and Guwahati. Currently microzonation studies of Chennai, Koimbatore, Bhubaneshwar and Mangalore are in progress.
