Between 55 and 40 million years ago, the northward-bound Indian plate collided with the Eurasian plate, generating tremendous stress and energy which was relieved by a spectacular skyward thrust that uplifted the jagged Himalayan peaks.
Today, the Indian plate continues to move forward, wedging beneath the Eurasian plate at a rate of about 45mm per year. According to Dr Soma Nath Sapkota, deputy director-general of the geoscience division at the Kathmandu Department of Mines and Geology, this earthquake — which was felt across miles, from Delhi to the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka — was long anticipated. Stretching km along the northeast of India, the Himalayas pass through India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan and Nepal, and is home to nine of the 10 highest peaks in the world.
The Himalayas have experienced large earthquakes before. InNepal endured a Magnitude 8. Ina Magnitude 8.
Kathmandu Valley is one of the most seismically hazardous regions in the world, with Nepal sitting above a constantly moving thrust fault, along the highly volatile Indus-Yarlung suture zone, which is the breeding ground for fault lines across the Himalaya. The area experiences a large earthquake about every 75 years, so a big one was overdue. According to the US Geological Survey, earthquakes occurring less than 70km deep are considered shallow.
Without much land to travel through, shockwaves lost little energy when they reached the surface. And all in less than a minute. The Kathmandu Valley is also located above a m-deep layer of black clay, which amplifies the damage caused by earthquakes because it makes the region prone to soil liquefaction — in essence, turning the ground to virtual quicksand that can swallow buildings and shift roads.
These factors, coupled with heavy populations surrounding fault-line areas, poor building structures and subpar disaster management standards have had fatal consequences on the Himalayan nation, whose death toll is climbing closer to Aftershocks as big as Magnitude 6.
Dr Soma Nath Sapkota says that historically, aftershocks following giant earthquakes, such as the quake, are felt for anywhere between one week and a year.
These aftershocks often cause further damage to unstable buildings and may further injure those who are trapped. In response, many thousands of Nepalese have been sleeping outside, too scared to enter their homes.
