SAN DIEGO, July 23 (UPI) -- Those who survived the deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake that ravaged Nepal in April of 2015 likely have little interest in detailing the deadly quake's trajectory. But that's exactly scientists at the University of California, San Diego have done.
In effort to better understand the movement of major earthquakes, researchers have mapped out how the rumbles played out over the course of several harrowing minutes. The map shows the movement of low and high frequency waves as they emanated from the quake's epicenter. Researchers have divided the trajectory of the tremor into three stages.
