原始语种摘要: Mridula et al. (Nat Hazards 84:383–403, ( 2016 ) have tried to identify segments of two major thrust faults, the Main Boundary Thrust and Main Central Thrust, in Western Himalaya. This was done by using seismological and tectonic data where various patterns have been recognized. However, the study has used uncorrected seismological data to recognize patterns. This has serious limitations because the seismological data have huge errors with depth, which should be corrected before any pattern can be recognized. Since the earthquake data have not been corrected for depth, it is impossible to plot them on a tectonic map and to assign them to a particular fault. Such an exercise is possible only if the earthquake events are relocated for both depth and location. Further, the authors have used...
