    Study Implementation Method / Research Implementation Method

    Assesses the earthquake hazard in the Indo-Gangetic Plains in the Himalayan region. Strong motion seismometers will be deployed to obtain data on the assessment of the seismicity in the region and to record earthquakes from the Himalayas. These moderate size earthquakes recorded with this network can be used to make predictions of strong motions for large earthquakes. It will also become feasible to take up detailed numerical modeling of seismic ground response for complex 3D velocity structures.
