Fulbright Forum

You Can’t fault the Himalaya – or can you? A geological research journey in the Nepal Himalaya

The Fulbright Commission and Fulbright Alumni Association of Nepal (FAAN) are delighted to host an in-person Fulbright Forum on Monday, December 12 at 4:00 PM at the Fulbright Commission, Aakriti Marg, Maharajgunj.

Through the Fulbright Scholar award, Mary Hubbard is in Nepal to study fault zones that cut north-south across the Himalaya. Her work is a collaboration with students and faculty at the Tri Chandra Campus of Tribhuvan University and other Nepali geoscientists. These fault zones have not been studied in detail in the field though they have possible links to seismicity and the landslide hazard.

Mary is a professor of Geology from Montana State University. Her work in Nepal began in the 1980’s and after many years working in other mountain belts she has recently returned to the Nepal Himalaya.
