Good luck to colleagues and sincerely appreciate the help received from the Small World Mireia these weeks listening and accompany us everywhere. Without them it would have been even more difficult to get to where we have come.

Thanks to all who have collective approaches and those who have not already done so, to encourage you to do so, they still have need!

We must expect new large earthquake near the Himalayas

Earthquakes occur in this area by the push plate against the Eurasian plate Indica, converging at a rate of about five centimeters a year, and have turned the slopes of the Himalayas in a failure of some 2,000 km long. "This movement does not accommodate linearly but accumulates due to friction of the rocks," says Pablo González, earthquake specialist in Leeds University and COMET. He adds: "This is the process that loads power failures and then released in the form of earthquakes."

González explains that their measurements show that the earthquake Gorkha April 25 was a slip fault about five meters. "Because the whole front of the mountain chain converges, adjacent segments are also prepared to break in future earthquakes. So it seems that the earthquake today was closer to breaking the previous magnitude earthquake, quite similar, it falls into the strict definition of reply ", he concludes.

Unfortunately, according to Gonzalez, expect new major earthquake in the Himalayas, but do not know when. "Only the analysis of the history of ruptures prior analysis of the segments that break and determining how it behaves the rest of the fault rupture around us closer to improving our understanding of seismic phenomenon," says .
