The Earthquake and Dam Systems Performance Project is a research effort at the National Performance of Dams Program (NPDP) at Stanford University. The program vision is to establish a real-time data collection and archival system on the world-wide seismic performance of dam systems world-wide that can be a basis for data-driven insights and models that support dam engineering and safety (Learn More).

1The lower bound on earthquakes identified in real-time is 4.5.
2Dams located in proximity to earthquakes are identified on the basis of the earthquake magnitude and a distance within which they may have experienced some level of ground motion.
