Dr. Gulam Rasool Bhat

Research Area

I am an earthquake geologist with special interests in Disaster Management, Tectonic Geomorphology, Paleoseismology, seismology and geodynamics. The main focus of my research over the years has been the study of ground deformation (on fault and off fault) of paleo earthquakes, rupture dynamics and seismic potential of active faults in diverse tectonic environments like N/w Himalaya to Andaman Subduction zone. Further, to understand the physics of earthquakes cycle, the structural and seismogenic behavior of active fault systems, earthquake recurrence and societal implications of earthquakes and related hazards. I incorporate a wide range of data sets in my research from paleoseismology trench investigations along and across the active faults, prepare paleo surface rupture maps, tsunami deposits, to geophysical techniques like GPR, Seismic reflection, ERT, GPS etc.
