Abstract From 2005 December 2 to 2006 February 26, a dense seismological network of 17 stations was installed in the epicentral region of the 2005 November 27 Qeshm sequence. The epicentral distribution of aftershocks, including an ENE–WSW trend of seismicity, is terminated on both sides by NW–SE alignments of events. The depth distribution of events (i.e., 8–20 km depth) is diffuse but in the eastern part of the aftershock zone reveals an alignment of seismicity dipping ∼40° toward the NW… CONTINUE READING
