13.1 INTRODUCTION

 

It was the deadliest day in the

 

history of Mt. Everest. On April

 

25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earth

 

-

 

quake hit Nepal. This triggered

 

an avalanche that killed 19 climb-

 

ers on Mt. Everest. In Nepal, over

 

8,800 people died, and many more

 

were injured and made homeless.

 

Hundreds of aftershocks (smaller

 

earthquakes that follow a larger

 

earthquake) have occurred since

 

(Figure 13.1).

 

Earthquakes are not new to this

 

region. A similar death toll was ex-

 

perienced in a 1934 earthquake, and

 

many other smaller earthquakes

 

have occurred within historical

 

times. An 1833 quake of similar

 

magnitude resulted in less than 500

 

deaths, though this was most likely due to two very large foreshocks (smaller earth

 

-

 

quakes that precede the main earthquake) that sent most residents out of doors in

 

alarm, which was safer for them. Worldwide, there have been much deadlier and

 

stronger earthquakes just in this century (Haiti, 2010 – 316,000 dead; Sumatra,

 

2004 – 227,000 dead, both with deaths related to ground shaking and the other

 

hazards that were created by the earthquake). Earthquakes give geologists valuable

 

information about the Earth, both the interior, as we learned about in the Earth’s In-

 

terior chapter, and about conditions at the Earth’s surface (most earthquakes occur

 

at plate boundaries, as we learned in the Plate Tectonics chapter, Figure 4.8).
