Seismo-at-School in Nepal

National Earthquake Safety Day celebration

On Maagh 2, 1990 BS (January 15, 1934) a disastrous earthquake has hit Nepal. Its date was later selected to celebrate the National Earthquake Safety Day by the Government of Nepal.

This year, Maagh 2 falls on January 16th, and we celebrate this event for the 22nd time. Our project contributes with two events:

  • A newspaper article in Kantipur – click HERE
  • A coordinated “jump near your seismometer” action in schools participating in the Seismology at School in Nepal program

Pictures of this event at schools, and observed waveforms and shaking are shown below. Click on the photo for full-size version download, or get the PDF.
