... well. MM stations recorded more than 20 earthquakes of M ≥4.5 within Myanmar and its immediate surroundings, including an M 6.8 earthquake located northwest of Mandalay on 13 April 2016 and the M w 6.8 Chauk event on 24 August 2016. We use this new dataset to calculate horizontal‐to‐vertical spectral...

... events in the MMB had been reported. The oldest rock in the MMB was determined to be ca. 491 Ma for orthogneiss north of Mandalay, interpreted to be the age of its protolith ( Mitchell et al. 2012 and references therein). The oldest undeformed intrusive rocks in the MMB is a ca. 128 Ma diorite near...

.... Within central Burma, events 7 and 8 appear to have occurred close to the dextral strike-slip fault running from Mandalay to Rangoon (Ichikawa et al., 1972). The pressure directions obtained from the mechanism of these two earthquakes act at right angles to the fault. The large strike-slip movements...
