Mapping of Earthquake Prone Areas: Earthquake and its assessment

Textbook 2014 77 Pages

Geography / Earth Science - Cartography, Geographic Information Science and Geodesy

Summary

Pakistan and its neighboring counties contain all recognized kinds of most important plate boundaries as well as important dynamic intra-plate twists. Understanding the tectonics in this multifaceted area has been delayed by a relative lack of data and the difficulty of geologic and tectonic troubles. Even with the raise in the quantity of data in the past few years, the complications of the area need a multidirectional approach to cope with the geology and tectonics. Thus, in order to assemble huge, multidirectional data sets with varying superiority and resolution, this study takes on a Geographic Information System (GIS) approach to see at these troubles in a comprehensive and exceptional way. In this study, the authors compile maps of surficial tectonic features and deepness of the Moho, Pn velocities and Pg velocities for Pakistan and explain a cross-section means to work with data in a GIS format.
