The scale was developed in the 1970’s to succeed the 1930’s-era Richter magnitude scale (ML) Richer scale is improved form of Marcalli scale. Richter Scale : Richter Scale Source: www.setileague.org Tectonic Plates : Tectonic Plates Tectonic plates are large plates of rock that make up the foundation of the earth's crust. There are ten major plates on the earth and many more minor ones. The plates are most famously known for being the source of Earthquakes. Pakistan Tectonic Plates : Pakistan Tectonic Plates Pakistan overlaps with the Indian and the Eurasian tectonic plates. Sindh and Punjab lie on Indian plate. Balochistan and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa lie within the Eurasian plate.

Source: www.dripireland.org Earthquake vs Tsunami : Earthquake vs Tsunami The adverse effects of this earthquake are estimated to be larger than those of the Tsunami of December 2004 Reasons of Destruction : Reasons of Destruction Stone masonry buildings (with poor bonding) No horizontal bond beams were provided at the levels of plinth, or roof No vertical members of concrete or wood were provided in walls In some cases, certainly due to economic constraints, the stones were observed to have been laid even dry (no mortar at all) and the gaps were filled by small pieces of stones Reasons of destruction : Reasons of destruction Poor quality of concrete used for fabrication of blocks Inadequate thickness of walls (6 inch) No integrity of the wall in the transverse direction Weak connections at corners Inadequate lap splices ERRA : ERRA The Govt. of Pakistan established the Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority (ERRA) on October 24, 2005 to take up the task of rebuilding in the earthquake affected regions. It includes civil servants, armed forces personnel and international consultants. ERRA’s mission was to “Convert this Adversity into an Opportunity” by reconstructing the lost and destroyed facilities. NDMA : NDMA National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), is the lead agency at the Federal level to deal with Disaster Management Activities. In event of disaster, Government Ministries & Departments, Armed Forces, NGOs, work through and from NDMA to conduct one window operation. 2011 Earthquake, Pakistan : 2011 Earthquake, Pakistan Source: www. earthquake.usgs.gov 2005 vs 2011 Earthquake : 2005 vs 2011 Earthquake 2005 Earthquake was Disaster while 2011 Earthquake was Hazard. 2005- Magnitude 7.8 & Densely populated areas. 2011- Magnitude 7.2 but Sparsely populated areas. 2005- 80 000+ people died. 2011- No major loss. HAZARD can become DISASTER, if earthquake comes in Densely populated areas or near Coastal Areas. Constraints : Constraints Lack of latest equipments. Lack of funding from Govt. Lack of implementation of Seismic Building Codes. Lack of public awareness. Lack of training programs and workshops.
