 Seismic hazard modelling in South America presents scientists and engineers with a diverse set of challenges. Incorporating some of the most seismically active regions on the planet, and including many of the largest earthquakes ever recorded, the South American subduction zone dominantes the earthquake hazard in the west of the continent and provides the principal tectonic force driving the shallow non-subduction earthquakes in western Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru and Colombia. In addition to the tectonic complexity, further challenges arise due to the current state of knowledge, with inhomogeneous characterisation of seismicity, active faulting and strong motions between different countries. ​ Seismic hazard modelling in South America presents scientists and engineers with a diverse set of challenges.
