"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."

"The Neoproterozoic Era was one of major biotic change against a background marked by fluctuations in oceanic and atmospheric chemistry, formation and rifting of the supercontinent Rodinia, and at least two global glaciations (Snowball Earth events). Presented here are three studies of differing aspects of those biological changes."
