Using the focal mechanism solutions of the mid-strong earthquakes in the Tianshan,Xinjiang area and Sichuan-Yunnan area since 1970,we comparatively analyzed the faulting features of the mid-strong earthquakes in the two areas.The results show:(1)The rupturing features of the mid-strong earthquakes are complex and diverse in the Tianshan,Xinjiang area,which are mainly characterized by thrust and strike-slip faulting;while the strong earthquakes in the Sichuan-Yunnan area are mainly characterized… CONTINUE READING
