Exaggerated fear of earthquakes in the UAE is entirely groundless and unjustified, according to an expert who has said that the UAE and the Gulf region are not included in the isoseismic
line of any high magnitude earthquakes.
Data were collected for understanding the nature of the earthquakes and related hazard in the area and, also, for compiling isoseismic
and intensity maps.
These trends are the most significant structural geological units in the investigated area and these ones very often represent the main directions of isoseismic
lines and detailed seismological studies from IGN and Institute of the Physics of the Earth, Brno.
