  • In major part of the Eastern Himalaya, the Himalaya takes a sharp southward bend and connects with the Indo-Burma Range.
  • Tuting-Tidding Suture Zone (TTSZ) of the Arunachal Himalaya has gained significant importance in recent times due to the growing need of constructing roads and hydropower projects, making the need for understanding the pattern of seismicity in this region critical.
  • Recent study in the TTSZ, Arunachal Pradesh, has revealed that the area is generating moderate earthquakes at two different depths.
  • The study aims to explore the elastic properties of rocks and seismicity in this easternmost part of India.
