Learning From Events
The model incorporates new insights from the significant typhoon and non-typhoon flood events within the last few years.
Wind and Flood Model Innovations
Many new innovations including 50,000-year simulated stochastic typhoon track set, new research on extratropical transitioning, and advanced ocean, storm surge, wave and defense modeling.
Local Market Calibration
Vulnerability function calibrated with over two trillion yen of claims data from 35 events spanning 20 years.
Japan Typhoon and Flood HD Model
Comprehensive view of all sources of flood risk incorporates the latest science and market insights.
Understand Non-Typhoon Flood
Account for losses from non-typhoon flood events, such as the 2018 West Japan Heavy Rain event, for a complete view of flood risk in Japan.
Recalibrated vulnerability functions reflect local wind design code provisions and detailed insights from RMS field reconnaissance from 2018–19 typhoon events.
Geographical modeling resolution has been increased to provide modeled wind and flood hazard up to coordinate‑level resolution to aid explicit modeling of both perils.
Post-event Loss Amplification
Incorporates extensive research on observed post-event loss amplification (PLA) after other major global losses, together with specific local market knowledge of the latest changes following 2018 events.
