Seismic Hazard of Microzonation of Chitral, Murree & Quetta - UNDP
<font size=\"2\"><strong style=\"font-family: Tahoma;\">INTRODUCTION</strong></font><p style=\"font-family: Tahoma;\"><font size=\"2\">The cities of Quetta, Murree and Chitrai are among the seismically most vulnerable cities of Pakistan. According to the seismological maps prepared by Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP) these cities are located in close proximity of active tectonic features capable of generating hazardous earthquakes. As per Building Code of Pakistan - Seismic Provisions 2007, these cities lie in relatively High Seismic Zones i.e. Zone 3 and Zone 4 with a recommended PGA value of greater than 0.32g. Heavy damage to these cities is anticipated during a future seismic event that could adversely affect the life and economy of the country. However, the local Governments, urban communities and decision makers are not fully aware of earthquake risks involved to these cities. In order to build the capacity of municipal authorities and resilience of urban communities, appropriate information and data shall be produced and reflected by self explanatory user friendly maps and drawings for City Managers and other Government Line departments to ensure sustainable social and economic development.</font></p><font size=\"2\"><strong style=\"font-family: Tahoma;\">SCOPE OF WORK/SERVICES</strong><strong style=\"font-family: Tahoma;\"><br><span style=\"font-weight: normal;\">This study will include the Seismic Hazard Microzonation (SHM) of Quetta, Murree and Chitrai municipalities for the development of Seismic Hazard Microzonation Maps using Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) indicating different levels of seismic hazard microzones and preparation of a comprehensive report inclusive of recommendations and guidelines for City Managers and landuse planners. The process of Seismic</span></strong></font><p style=\"font-family: Tahoma;\"><font size=\"2\">Hazard Microzonation will be utilized as an opportunity to raise awareness of the Government line departments and urban communities, to substantiate earthquake safer urban landuse planning and development. The scope of work involves the geologic, geotechnical and seismic evaluation of rocks and soils of these cities by utilizing the available secondary data / information for the determination of seismic design parameters for earthquake resistant construction. It also involves the analysis of instrumental seismic data for the provision of realistic PGA values. However to ascertain the reliability of secondary, data, necessary field verification studies shall be conducted as required. Field studies shall also be focused to collect necessary raw data required for geologic mapping and delineation of fault rupture zones. The scope of work also includes the recommendations and guidelines for existing construction in perspective with Building Code of Pakistan - Seismic Provisions 2007 and findings of the SHM studies of these cities.
