Mini-Workshop on the Himalayan Seismogenic Zone (HSZ)
Tuesday December 15, 2015, 7-9pm, Grand Hyatt Union Square, 36th floor
The April 25, 2015 Mw 7.8 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal was a dramatic reminder that not all great thrust earthquakes occur on oceanic subduction zones. This mini-workshop is intended to facilitate discussion and organization of possible international, multidisciplinary efforts to study the Himalayan Seismogenic zone to better understand both the threat of future ruptures in this region and mechanics of large thrust earthquakes at convergent plate boundaries in general.
