... earthquake, which is one of the largest historical earthquakes that occurred in the region, and use the earthquake history of the last 250 yrs to help decipher the complexity of the active deformation of the Mitidja basin (MB). Newly discovered contemporary accounts are used to assess and discuss the extent...

... peaks. These resonances have been explained either in terms of S ‐wave transfer function or in terms of Rayleigh‐wave ellipticity. In this study, ambient vibration recordings have been carried out next to nine boreholes in the eastern Mitidja basin (Algeria), all of which have been characterized...

... Mitidja basin ( Figure 1 ), which has been formed during north-south Miocene extension ( Philip, 1983 ). This extension has been followed by a north-south to north-northwest-south-southeast compression. The compressional movement continued during the Quaternary ( Meghraoui, 1988 ; Boudiaf, 1996...

.... In this study, we provide the precise location of the Bordj‐Menaïel earthquake, the focal mechanism, and an estimate of the source parameters. These data will improve our understanding of this tectonically complex area. The region of interest is in the eastern part of the Mitidja basin, a Neogene basin...

... century (the El Asnam earthquake of 10 October 1980, Ms 7.3, I0=X MSK). It is worth mentioning that the shock of 21 May 2003 is situated in the eastern extremity of the rather narrow strip that concentrates an appre- ciable part of the seismicity of the Mitidja basin, distributed on a zone about 100 km...

In the eastern part, in Algeria, the analysis of the seis- micity shows that the seismogenic areas are located in the vicinity of the Quaternary basins [Bezzeghoud et al., 1996: Messeta (Oran), Cheliff (Relizane-E1 Asnam), and Mitidja...
