Detailed analysis of sediments covering the Main Frontal Thrust in Nepal show how climate-driven baselevel changes affect sedimentation and should be considered when inferring thrust activity.
Los Himalayas han perdido 40% de su masa glaciar desde la Pequeña Edad de Hielo. El Este de Nepal y Bután han sufrido pérdidas de forma más acelerada.
Using susceptibility models to forecast the potential locations of landslides is a key tool in mitigating landslide hazard, but are existing approaches appropriate in dynamic mountainous settings?
The Himalayas have lost 40% of their glacial mass since the Little Ice Age. East Nepal and Bhutan have experienced the most rapid losses.
From its high mountains to its low plains, Nepal faces growing risks from natural hazards. Preparing for these risks requires accurate, locally relevant risk assessments and effective communications.
When the pandemic hit Nepal and the country’s main airport drastically cut flights, a group of drone experts, local governments, and scientists saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gather geodata.
El programa de Sismología en la Escuela en Nepal, tiene como objetivo preparar a las comunidades rurales para el próximo gran terremoto.
The Seismology at School in Nepal program aims to prepare rural communities for the next big earthquake.
Surface winds in a Himalayan valley are found to vary daily and seasonally due to factors including pressure gradient, advection, turbulent vertical mixing, and the presence of glaciers.
Modest ground motion for such a big quake and some prior training in earthquake preparedness averted worse death and destruction, earthquake scientists say.
