Myanmar-­India-­Bangladesh-Bhutan (MIBB) tectonic geodesy

We propose to look in detail at five years of data that have been recorded by 24 continuous GPS stations in the Myanmar-­India-­Bangladesh-­Bhutan (MIBB) network, and extend their coverage with InSAR, to address a set of key unresolved questions about tectonics and earthquake hazard in these four countries. To begin, we will investigate variations in creep or locking of the Sagaing fault and Arakan megathrust along strike, the seismic hazard posed by the Dauki thrust, and strain partitioning between these two major systems and oblique slip faults in the Indoburman range.
