USGS website

The USGS Earthquake Hazards Program (EHP) Research Priorities presented here reflect its mission within the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) to reduce loss of lives and property from earthquakes and improve public safety and community resilience in the Nation. Applicants should review the four major program elements described below and the priority research targets listed below for each region and topic. Proposed work should advance the science that underlies EHP products by posing and testing new hypotheses and/or developing novel data acquisition tools, analysis methods, and products. Proposed work can also improve information dissemination and make research results more effective in mitigating losses from earthquakes.

Element I. National and regional earthquake hazards assessments.
Element II. Earthquake information, monitoring and notification.
Element III. Research on earthquake occurrence, physics, effects, impacts, and risks.
Element IV. Earthquake safety policy and communication.
