NGRI scientists to study Nepal earthquake

Share & Comment
"NGRI teams are going to the Nepal border. They will study the characteristics of this quake and its aftershocks using seismic data and field mapping in the coming days. The aim is to assess the seismic hazard level," NGRI, Additional in-charge, Ch Mohan Rao, said.

The information and knowledge obtained through the analyses would be helpful in understanding the earthquake dynamics and identify the earthquake-prone areas, he said.
  
The information would also be useful in taking  decisions on locating sensitive installations like nuclear power plants, Rao, who is also Director, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), said.

However, he stressed that there was no way earthquakes can be predicted and the need was to take adequate measures to mitigate loss of life and property during such catastrophe.

"No... no way we can predict (a quake). People need to be taught what needs to be done in the event of a quake. School children should be taught. There should be a designated area where people should assemble when a quake occurs," he said.
