Forecast: Crowds cause recent earthquake in India: Expert

Kolkata: Recent earthquakes in different parts of India have been caused by forecasts and swings, a senior official of the Geological Survey of India (GSI) has said, adding that rain tremors are a cause for concern in the subcontinent. , Where there is a risk of major earthquake activity in several areas.
Dr. Sandeep Som, Deputy Director General, GSI, also said that the forecast – earthquakes before a mild tremor – or congestion activity – a series of earthquakes – indicates the release of tectonic pressure and tension during the process of continuous deformation And a detailed study can help predict any of these tremors if there is a significant earthquake.
“These minor earthquakes are mainly located in the northeastern and northwestern Himalayan region around the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCT), western Gujarat and western Maharashtra,” the geologist said. He told PTI on Sunday.
He said that in the past also low magnitude earthquakes have been recorded in these areas.
According to GSI scientists, earthquakes in the northeastern and northwestern Himalayas occur along the plate convergence zone between India and Eurasia.
He said, “In the Delhi-NCT region, the local distribution of earthquakes is measured at three places along the Maheshgarh-Dehradun underground fault and along the Delhi sub-surface ridge, especially in the west of Delhi (near Sonipat). Focuses on the activity of. ”
Dr. Soom said, “Similarly, in West Gujarat, the seismic concentration is located near the intersection between the Rajkot-Lathi amplitude and some tectonic landmass. The Western Ghats Escort has the east-west flexibility of the Indian lithosphere. ”
Explaining the reason behind repeated earthquakes, the geologist said that any earthquake depends on the tension and tension in an area.
“As well as the convergence zone between the Indian and Eurasian plates, significant stresses and areas of tension construction have also been noted. Due to the constant movement of the plate, tensions in this region increase. At the same time, there are about 30 reservoirs. “Increasing water load increases the pressure and tension in the reservoir,” he said.
Incidentally, GSI has deployed 30 permanent GPS stations across the country to monitor the movement of tectonic plates and prepare a tension map to identify potentially dangerous areas.
“Work is underway and the first phase will be completed soon. We are also conducting active fault studies to assess seismic-wise micro-zones (the process of subdivision of the region) and potentially geological hazard-affected sites,” he said. Will do. ”
