    Study Implementation Method / Research Implementation Method

    Performs active fault mapping and slip rate estimation in the NW-Central Himalayan region. GPS data, together with high resolution satellite photos and geological data will be used to identify active fault scarps and related features. Slip rates are calculated to estimate recurrence interval along the faults in the study area.
