    Abstract. This paper is a summary and progress report of a study of the northeastern Indian Ocean, covering the areas of the Bengal and Nicobar Fans, the western Wharton Basin, the continental margins surrounding the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Sea, the Andaman-Nicobar Ridge, the Sunda Arc off Sumatra and Java, and the adjacent land areas (Fig. 1). The Muzaffarabad region in western Himalaya, the site of the devastating earthquake of 8 October of magnitude , occupies a unique tectonic position, encompassed by the Himalayan arc to the.

      1. Introduction. The Himalayan orogen is one of the youngest mountain belts on Earth created by continent–continent collision and offers an unique opportunity for understanding the process of mountain building (Yin and Harrison, , Zhang et al., ).The eastern Himalayan syntaxis has attracted the attention of many geologists for its special tectonic position at the end of the mountain.   Hima’ al-aya is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘abode of snow’ (Zurick and Pacheco, ).Himalaya is the world’s youngest, highest and largest orogenic belt, being km wide and extending for more than km between the Nanga Parbat Syntaxis to the NW in Pakistan and the Namche-Barwa Syntaxis to the SE in Tibet (Wadia, ; Gansser, ; Fig. 1).

Active faults and their relevant tectonic features are discussed in order to clarify the neotectonics of the Himalayan collision. Active faults have been discovered by means of interpretation of topographic maps and aerial photographs, as well as by field studies.

1. Introduction. The India–Asia collision marks an important geological event in the Cenozoic Earth, resulting in the construction of one of the largest orogens on the globe — the Himalayan orogen (e.g., Zhang et al., a, Zhang et al.,Aitchison et al., ).The Himalayas represent the youngest and one of the world's largest collisional orogens, and record not only the shortening.
