Nepal Earthquake
35 years of earthquakes in Nepal
Mapping epicentres and richter scale magnitude

The following maps attempt to give context to the ongoing crisis in Nepal as a result of the recent earthquake and aftershocks by studying the history of Nepalese earthquakes from the previous 35 years. The magnitude of the earthquake on the richter scale is marked by spherical diameter.

Major earthquakes in Nepal from the past 200 years
Comparing richter scale magnitudes, fatalities and building damage

Studying the earthquake magnitude (richter scale), fatality numbers and building damage of major earthquakes in Nepal from the past 200 years

 

15 years of Major Global Earthquakes

Studying major global earthquakes from the past fifteen years. At present the full extent of fatalities in Nepal is yet to be determined, current predictions estimate at least 10,000 deaths.
