A survey of Nepal's disaster resilience

The 2015 Nepal earthquake was caused by a rupture of the fault along the contact between the Indian and Eurasian plates. In places the displacement was as great as six metres!

On April 25, 2015, the Earth moved violently in Nepal.

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake killed more than 8,000 people, injured at least 19,000, and destroyed infrastructure and homes, both modern and historic. TeBi Researcher Lulu He has started to gather survey data on the disaster resilience after the catastrophic Nepal earthquake last year. With only 25 days to collect her data for her PhD she has been hard at work in some pretty tough conditions.
