    Accurate definition of potential earthquake sources plays a main role on the development of seismic hazard assessment regardless of the applied methodology, either probabilistic or deterministic. In this paper, we analyze the results of the work by Bhatia et al. dedicated to identification of earthquake-prone areas in the Himalaya. The work was Cited by: 8. The report is not an assessment of seismic safety at nuclear plants. To accomplish the evaluation and to provide suggestions for improvements using funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of , the U.S. Geological Survey examined addition of new strong-motion seismic stations in areas of seismic activity and addition of new.

Paleoseismicity appears to be the only available tool which is able to extend the record of seismic activity beyond this short time-window.
