Scientists to map quake-prone Asian region in hope of mitigating disaster

4 Jan 2018, TRF

An international team of scientists is set to begin a four-year project that will map, image and monitor an earthquake-prone area that encompasses some of the most remote and densely populated parts of Asia. The initiative will involve planting more than 100 seismometers that detect tremors in Bangladesh and western Myanmar, along the so-called IndoBurma subduction zone.
