• Publications on Gorkha research

    Our publication on the analysis of strong motion data from the 2015 M7.8 earthquake in Nepal is now available online on the Gorkha Special Issue of Tectonophysics. Also, the GEER report on our field observations can be found here; while our findings have been included in the Special Issue of the Seismological Research Letters on the same event. We look forward to your comments and questions! 10/10/2016

  • SEISMOSOIL v1.0 is now available for PC, Mac
