It has been widely suggested that the 1999 M W 7.1 Hector Mine earthquake in the Mojave Desert, California, was triggered by the nearby 1992 M W 7.3 Landers earthquake. If this is true, our simulations of the Landers earthquake aftershock sequence show that it is unlikely that the Landers earthquake triggered the Hector Mine earthquake directly. Rather we(More)
We probed the rupture zone of the October 1999 M 7.1 Hector Mine earthquake using repeated near-surface explosions in October 2000 and November 2001. Three dense linear seismic arrays were deployed across the north and south Lavic Lake faults (LLFs) that broke to the surface in the mainshock and across the Bullion fault (BF) that experienced minor slip in(More)
We looked for evidence of interseismic strain occurring between the 1992 Landers earthquake and the 1999 Hector Mine earthquake near the Lavic Lake and Bullion faults by using interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR). Interferograms covering the Hector Mine epicentral region were studied for possible slip along the Bullion and Lavic Lake faults by(More)
Effects of heat tolerance (HT) relating with individual emotionality, and of thermal biofeedback on itching were examined. Fourteen high HT subjects and 12 low HT subjects were selected by the Cold and Heat Tolerance Scales (Dienstbier, LaGuardia, & Wilcox, 1987). The experiment was divided into three phases: rating of itch, eight thermal biofeedback(More)
The purpose of this study is to find out if the personalities of siblings are similar or different. Subjects used were Doshisha University students and members of their families, provided those families had only two children. Altogether 29 pairs of boys and their younger brothers, 47 pairs of boys and their younger sisters, 44 pairs of girls and their(More)
