With the help of the EPS and Geography Departments, we've created a guide to resources at the Earth Sciences & Map Library related to the April 25th earthquake in Nepal.
The Nepal Earthquake guide highlights historic publications about prior earthquakes in Nepal, articles about tectonic activity in the region, topographic and geologic maps, links to information from the USGS as well as GIS datasets and humanitarian mapping efforts.
We welcome your questions and visits to the library to see these materials in person.
Blog post contributed by Samantha Teplitzky, Earth & Physical Sciences Librarian, and Susan Powell, GIS and Map Librarian.
