Project Overview

The country of Bangladesh sits in a complex tectonic region on the eastern side of the India-Asia collision zone. In order to both unravel the tectonic structure of the region and to better assess earthquake hazards, we installed a network of 28 seismometers in 2016 across the eastern side of Bangladesh (the TREMBLE network).

We have now successfully collected data for more than two years for the network and are in the process of data processing and interpretation.
