SCIENCE DAILY Builders of hydroelectric dams are required to perform seismic hazard studies before their designs are approved. Researchers are working on a new national map of seismic hazards for Brazil. In preparing the seismic hazard map, the researchers first conducted a survey of the tremors that have occurred in Brazil in recent decades in order to determine the level of seismic activity in each region. 4 weeks
