  2. Creation of a database of active faults
  3. Modelling the subduction process along the western coast of South America
  4. Compilation of a historical and instrumental catalogue for South America
  5. Improving the regional strain rate model
  6. Selection of Ground Motion Prediction Equations for Seismic hazard analysis in South America
  7. Construction of the new regional seismic hazard model
