A portable seismograph network was operated by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Mono Lake-northern Owens Valley, California, region in the autumn of 1970. From 20 days of recording, 74 microearthquakes were located. The geographic extent of the microearthquakes is similar to the historic seismicity from 1934 to 1970. Focal mechanisms are mostly right-lateral strike slip; one very good dip-slip solution was obtained. The relative tension axis was found to be very nearly east-west.
