  • The northern and eastern bounds are taken to be the mean 3.5 km contour and the Po Qu-Lohit Fault, respectively. The western bound abuts the inferred rupture zone of the 1947 Mw = 7.7 earthquake. The SW thrust boundary is adopted from a talk given by Jerome Van De Woerd in 2017 (Coudurier-Curveur et al. 2018).

  • The epicentre was given as 28.38° N, 96.76° E in Chen & Molnar (1983) and 28.29° N, 96.66° E in ISC/GEM5.
