Although you may hear the terms “seismic zone” and “seismic hazard zone” used interchangeably, they really describe two slightly different things. A seismic zone is used to describe an area where earthquakes tend to focus; for example, the New Madrid Seismic Zone in the Central United States. A seismic hazard zone describes an area with a particular level of hazard due toMissing: Ethiopia. The following provides an example of 3-D seismic imaging of VMS deposits in the Flin Flon mining camp in Manitoba, Canada (Malinowski et al., ; White et al., ).The Flin Flon mining camp in Manitoba is located within the Paleoproterozoic Flin Flon metavolcanic belt and is close to the town of Flin Flon, Manitoba, near the Saskatchewan border at ~ 55° north.

Within the borders of Ethiopia, it is apparent that most of the country is subject to seismic activity. The Seismic zoning in Ethiopia book concentration of epicenters is found alorg the western escarpment of Afar and along the Ethiopian rift.

This seismic belt of about km in width runs parallel to the Asmara-Addis Ababa-Moyale highway. Likewise, the current seismic code of Ethiopia () named Ethiopian Standard for seismic design ES (ES, hereafter) and other related structural codes are also based on European Norms.

There is limited literature available in this area. Abeye () argues that an updated seismic hazard map of Africa is long overdue. In a case study analysis of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, a UNIDSR report identified as challenges an absence of previous seismic risk assessment, few specialists and limited practice in seismology and earthquake engineering, low awareness of.

FIRST ORDER ZONING OF ETHIOPIA Gouin () produced the first seismic hazard map of Ethiopia using a probabilistic approach. Since the production of that map, quite a large number of destructive earthquakes occurred in the country causing damages both to property and human life.

several research papers. The book, 'Earthquake History of Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa', written by Gouin () contains a substantial number of analyses of seismograms from station AAE and macroseismic information from field assessment of damages caused by earthquakes.

The first seismic zoning map of Ethiopia was published in in. Assessing seismic risk in Ethiopia 3 Triangle (Ayele & Kuthanek, ). Movement in these zones has made the region an active tectonic and volcanic zone (Haile, ). In Ethiopia, 90 per cent of the seismicity and volcanic activity is related to the East African rift system.

Gouin () produced the first seismic hazard map of Ethiopia using a probabilistic approach which served as a basis for developing the first building code of Ethiopia, ESCP Since the production of that map, quite a large number of destructive earthquakes occurred in the country causing damage both to property and human life.

In order to take stock of the current situation, a review of the seismic zoning provisions with respect to construction of most of the European countries is conducted and presented below.

The main work on reviewing the national seismic maps was performed in. Ethiopia has a federal form of government with nine regional states and two autonomous cities.

The first seismic zoning map of Ethiopia was published in in relation to the national effort to draft a code for earthquake resistant structures. Seismic source zonation In seismic source zoning, a thorough analysis of the main tectonic structures and their correlation with present-day seismicity was the basis for the delineation of the source zones.

This code defined four seismic code regions (i.e., 0, 1, 2, and 4) with a return-period of years and 90% probability of not being exceeded [46,47]. To each zone, a danger rating was .small infrastructure project needs a seismic hazard and risk assessment due to its significant implications in the socio-economic impact.

The Global Earthquake Model**** has set-off regional programs in sub-Sahara Africa and provides supports for implementing seismic zoning and probabilistic applications for large ground motions.
