About Temblor

Temblor, Inc. is a catastrophe modeling company specializing in seismic hazard and risk assessment. Founded in 2014 by former USGS scientists Ross Stein and Volkan Sevilgen, Temblor’s mission is to raise awareness of seismic risk. We serve the insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked security communities, and mortgage lenders.

Temblor is different from other cat modelers. Our models build on recent published and independently-tested scientific analyses to provide an independent, unbiased, and transparent assessment of risk. Our products include dynamic hazard and loss forecasts after large earthquakes; the first globally consistent insurance loss model; stochastic event sets; and the highest-resolution global site amplification model available today. Additionally, we calculate a building-level Temblor Earthquake Score, which folds in all factors that impact loss into one number for risk pricing and selection.

Temblor provides both its clients and the public with accurate, accessible, and understandable information about earthquakes. Temblor Earthquake News publishes breaking earthquake news, in-depth analyses, and expert reporting on the latest developments in natural hazards research. Our articles are written by scientists, science journalists, and leading international researchers.
