Sarez Lake

 

a lake in the Pamirs, in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast, Tadzhik SSR. Sarez Lake lies between the Severo-Alichur and Muzkol ranges at an elevation of 3,239 m. It covers an area of 86.5 sq km and measures approximately 75 km long and up to 3.4 km wide. The average depth is 190 m, and the maximum depth, 505 m. Sarez Lake was formed in 1911, when the material in an earthquake-caused landslide dammed the Murgab River. The lake is fed primarily by glaciers. The water level fluctuates by about 6 m. Sarez Lake freezes in late December or the first half of January; the ice breaks up between late March and May.

The obviously most important regional type of hazard to which the selected site is exposed (just as the other HPP sites downstream) is the one related to earthquakes: the site is located at 100 km in the southwest of the epicentral zone of the catastrophic 1949 Khait earthquake, and at 300-350 km in the West of the 1911 Sarez earthquake (see summary of events in Havenith and Bourdeau [3]).
The M=74 Khait earthquake triggered several large mass movements, including the Khait rock avalanche that had partly covered the town of Khait [4, 5], while the Sarez earthquake triggered a giant rockslide that formed the presently tallest (intact) natural dam on Earth, the Usoy dam [6].

This area has several dozens of minor earth tremors a year," Mahira Usmanova stated.The same situation is with the Rogun hydroelectric station in Tajikistan, which lies in Gissar-Kokshaal tectonic fault zone, which had such devastating and disastrous earthquake as Sarez quake in 1911 and Hait quake in 1949 and others.Ms Usmanova claimed that construction of big hydroelectric stations significantly increases seismic danger of this region."Observations of scholars show that this area is entering the next phase of seismic intensification.
