Two nodal planes for P were determined using a combination of P-wave first motion and S-wave polarization data and from S-wave data alone. The S-wave polarization error, δ

, is slightly lower for a type Il than for a type I mechanism. The type I mechanism solution indicates a predominately dip-slip faulting on a steeply dipping plane. The preferred solution is a type II mechanism with the following P nodal planes: strike N62°E, dip 82°S, (a plane); strike N22°W, dip 52°W, (b plane). Two solutions are possible: right lateral faulting which strikes northeast; or, left lateral faulting which strikes northwest. Both possible fault planes dip steeply.
