Potential natural threats

Costa Rica due to its geographical conditions, being a highly seismic country and the presence of a large number of volcanoes, rivers and mountains is exposed to a large number of natural hazards.Natural hazards are all elements of the environment that are dangerous for humans and their activities, these can be of various types such as geological, atmospheric, hydrological or fire phenomena that have the potential to affect human activities.

It is important prior to the development of a project to analyze the condition of the land with respect to the susceptibility to natural hazards to determine if the project can be developed in the proposed place and if it is necessary to implement mitigation measures to reduce an eventual vulnerability condition.

Between the studies realized by the team of work of Geo Costa Rica they are:


-Geological fault.

-Volcanic activity.

- Hydrometeorological threats.

-Stability of hillsides.

- Geotectonic studies or due to the effects of geological faults.

Geo Costa Rica has experience in the evaluation regarding the threat-risk assessment due to geological faulting, seismicity, liquefaction potential, slope stability, volcanic activity and floods to eventually consider the possibility of developing a specific project and generate recommendations to mitigate possible vulnerabilities that may arise.
