The SAFER (Seismic Safety and Resilience of Schools in Nepal) project work package “New generation seismic hazard for Nepal” aims to produce relevant outcomes for earthquake engineers working in Nepal. In order to improve disaster risk management, enhanced seismic hazard assessment is needed. Previous studies show there is insufficient geotechnical data in Kathmandu Valley to prepare a realistic hazard map. The SAFER project aims in part to collect and obtain new geotechnical data to assist with this aim. This paper presents data from a recent seismic microtremor test undertaken in the Kathmandu Valley.
