About Us

More than 60% of the India's landmass is exposed to earthquake hazard. Earthquake studies have acquired momentum, particularly after the most disastrous earthquakes like Uttarkashi 1991 (M=6.5), Latur 1993 (M=6.4), Jabalpur 1997 (M=6.0), Chamoli 1999 (M = 6.8), Bhuj 2001 (M= 7.6) and Kashmir 2005 (M=7.4). Ever since, seismic hazard assessment and risk analyses, updating the seismic zonation maps and engineering seismology have gained higher priority in seismological research. Understanding the crustal structure and earthquake processes and estimation of recurrence interval are other priority areas of research. More Info
