ICTP Seismology Workshop In Nepal Focuses On Himalayan Hazards
PDF File Size: 21 KB | Download   
The Himalayan mountain range, formed by the collision between India and Eurasia, is a work in progress: as the Indian plate continues in a northward motion, earthquakes are generated, contributing to the continued building of the mountains in what is known as the Indo-Asian Collision Zone, a unique natural laboratory in the world.What is the ongoing tectonics of this continued collision course? What is known about past large Himalayan earthquakes, what is uncertain, and where are the gaps in knowledge and in seismicity where large and destructive events could occur in the foreseeable future? Answers to these questions will contribute to a better assessment of the earthquake hazard and risk in a region where more than 50 million people are at risk from future earthquakes and associated landslides and outburst floods.
