* Destructive plate margin where indo-Australian plate subducted under Eurasion plate

* Eurasion plate was dragged down with Indo-Australian plate due to friction and after the earthquake, rebounded as pressure was released and displaced all the water above it

Social Effects:

* High death toll and many lost a family member if not both parents

* Deaths from a range of age groups and jobs so identifying dead and helping survivors hard

* Fear of disease as lived in bad quality refugee camps

* Many children were traumatised by what they saw
