"The ongoing Indo-Asian collision poses an enormous seismic hazard to growing populations in the region.  The prevailing tectonic model for the central Himalaya holds that ~2 cm/yr of Indo-Asian plate convergence is accommodated along the primary decollement under the range, the Main Himalayan Thrust (MHT).  During the interseismic period, the MHT is locked from the surface to ~100 km down-dip.  Accumulated strain is released during rupture of this locked zone, which can generate destructive Mw > 8.0 earthquakes."
