ABSTRACT

PAGER-Rapid Assessment of an Earthquake's Impact   [open pdf - 3MB]

This fact sheet describes the United States Geological Survey's Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response (PAGER) program. "PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) is an automated system to rapidly assess the number of people and regions exposed to severe shaking by an earthquake, and inform emergency responders, government agencies, and the media to the scope of the potential disaster. PAGER monitors the U.S. Geological Survey's near real-time U.S. and global earthquake detections and automatically identifies events that are of societal importance, well in advance of ground-truth or news accounts."
