Crustal strain and seismic hazard of the NE Tibetan Plateau

Abstract:

This thesis focuses on the seismic hazard of the NE Tibetan Plateau, an area that hosted one of the largest and most deadly earthquakes in China’s recorded his- tory. In order to estimate rates of earthquake occurrence from strain rates, it is necessary to use the Gutenberg-Richter relationship and assume a maximum magnitude. The largest recorded earthquake in the NE Tibetan Plateau is the 1920 Haiyuan Earthquake. It has often been quoted as of M 8.7, on a magnitude scale of uncertain mean...
