एम 7.2 भूकंप म्यांमार भूकंप ग्राफिक्स तुम देखना चाहिए

This part 2 of our Myanmar March 24, 2011 reporting. भाग 1 के लिए यहाँ क्लिक करें, giving the full story from when the earthquake was reported.

27 / 03 - 01 अपडेट करें: 13 यूटीसी: Teraphan Ornthammarath, पीएच.डी. और भूकंपी जोखिम मूल्यांकन और शमन वैज्ञानिक working at the Regional Integrated Multi Hazard Early Warning for Africa and Asia is describing the origin of the earthquake as follows :

The गलती है कि इस भूकंप से उत्पन्न नाम मा लाओस से म्यांमार के लिए प्रारंभिक गलती है.
यह Lacassin एट अल में वर्णित किया गया था. (1998) कि इस गलती गलती के जीवाश्म में ऑफसेट मेकांग नदी (20.80N, 100.45E) के रूप में चिह्नित.
1912 के बाद से कोई बड़ा भूकंप था इस गलती से.

Below a number of very good graphics from the Chinese Earthquake Authority.
They are showing very well the extension of the shaking, the faulting zones and the kind of earthquake it was.

यह map below shows the area of shaking. Dark red means a destructive or violent shaking.
The dark orange color is a severe shaking (MMI VIII)
The green means a moderate shaking.
Please note the the the extend of damage is not only related to the Magnitude. The composition on the geologic layers is also very important. A proof of this, is that the yellow and green colors in Thailand are relatively undamaged. The weak green shaking at the Chinese part of the border was however very damaging with more than 5,000 houses damaged.

यह नीचे चित्र gives a very good overview of the mapped Fault lines in the area. The epicenter of the 7.2 earthquake from March 24 is indicated with the blue star, just next to the fault line. The green bullets are cities (greater size = bigger city).
The white part of the map is Chinese territory. The purple fault lines going from the North-West to the South-East in China are responsible for the Yunnan earthquakes from January 2, 2011 (major damage) and the Yunnan deadly earthquake from March 10, 2011 (killing 25 people and making (again) major damage).
निष्कर्ष : The total area is very unstable at the moment.

यह नीचे चित्र shows the kind of earthquake it was. Apparently this was a strike-Slip fault.
Strike-slip fault = A fault whose relative displacement is purely horizontal.
Strike-Slip faulting is always very dangerous, even at some lower magnitudes.
