Seismic Risk Quantification and Management

Geosyntec provides specialized services in the characterization of geohazards including evaluation of design earthquake loading, landslide mapping and mitigation, karst topography assessment, and evaluation of other types of naturally occurring geological hazards.

We offer multi-disciplinary expertise in geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering, geological engineering and rock mechanics, geology, seismology, and remote sensing to identify and quantify the probabilities and potential impacts of geohazards. Our practitioners are leading authorities in the characterization, assessment, and construction of engineered structures in areas of high seismicity and areas underlain by karst and other geologic features.

Geosyntec specializes in managing potential losses from geohazards to minimize their social, environmental, and economic impacts. We offer expertise in geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering, geological engineering and rock mechanics, geology, seismology, and remote sensing to help mitigate the consequences of geological hazards. Business sectors which we operate in include petrochemical facilities, water and wastewater utilities, conventional and alternative energy producing facilities, and commercial developments.

Our engineers are also specialists in earthquake hazard evaluation including deterministic and probabilistic seismic hazard evaluation, development of design ground motions, site response analysis, fault studies, and casualty loss modeling.
