Fig. 1

Simplified geology of Kathmandu and location of strong-motion accelerometers. The temporary stations (green triangles) were added after the mainshock from the Gorkha Earthquake and were in operation for 3 months. Inset map of central and eastern Nepal showing the epicenters of the four earthquakes used in this study. The red star is the epicenter for the mb4.9 earthquake used to determine the 1-D models, the purple star is the epicenter for the Mw5.1 earthquake that occurred on April 25, 2015, 17:42 UTC, the blue star is the epicenter for the Mw5.1 that occurred at 23:16 UTC on the same day, and the green star is the epicenter for the Mw5.5 earthquake. The red line in the inset is the outline of the Himalayan Main Frontal Thrust
