...Peter L. Ward; James Gibbs; David Harlow; Arturo Aburto Q. abstract A detailed study of the aftershocks of the earthquake that devastated Managua, Nicaragua, on December 23, 1972, shows that the earthquake occurred on a fault that strikes N30° to 35°E and dips 80° to 90°E, and that this fault moved...

... between the development of these complexities. Furthermore, three distinctive modes of slip, or ‘seismic style’, can be recognized for different segments of these major transform fault systems. These are: (1) slip during great (M ≥ 8) earthquakes separated by long periods of quiescence; (2) slip during...

... Antilles and Trinidad and Tobago. An important limitation of these studies was that magnitudes and locations of the earthquakes in the adopted catalog were poorly constrained. Another problem was represented by the use of GMPE s for shallow events ( Esteva, 1974 ), even if the catalog also incorporated...

... and Stewart (1976) found that along the Gibbs fracture zone, at least two large earthquakes (in 1967 and 1974) involve a slow fracture process. This, together with the large fault length estimated, explains the low high-frequency energy radiated by these earthquakes and the disparity observed between m b...

These include the Estadio fault, which is responsible for the 1931 earthquake, and the Tiscapa fault and those related to it, which caused the 1972 earthquake ( Brown et al , 1973 ; Ward et al. , 1974...

... earthquake source parameters. Results of the inversion suggest that the earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 km along a fault dipping 54° to the east with a strike of 10 to 20°, and a rake of −155°. The strike is similar to that of the southern segment of the nearby Mayfield fault, a fault that shows...

With the aid of a finite-fault inversion method, we then examine aspects of the source of the 1994 Northridge earthquake that are reflected in the second to fifth IMF components. This study shows that the second IMF is predominantly wave motion...
