Strong motion data analysis of the 4 April 2011 Western Nepal earthquake (M 5.7) and its implications to the seismic hazard in the Central Himalaya

In the present study, the strong motion data of the 4 April 2011 western Nepal earthquake (M 5.7) recorded by a dense network of 24 strong motion accelerograph stations have been used to estimate horizontal and vertical component of the peak ground acceleration (PGA) to better understand its bearing on the seismic hazard scenario of the Central Himalayan region.
