Seismic Risk and Safety in Nepal
The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal in late April leveled buildings and triggered deadly avalanches on Mount Everest. Brian Tucker, a seismologist and founder of GeoHazards International, discusses the future seismic risk of the region and how cities like Kathmandu might rebuild to become more earthquake-resistant in the future. Plus, build an earthquake model using these instructions.
