Earthquake Source Parameters and Fault Kinematics in the Eastern California Shear Zone

  title={Earthquake Source Parameters and Fault Kinematics in the Eastern California Shear Zone},
  author={Laura E. Jones and Donald V. Helmberger},
Based on waveform data from a profile of aftershocks following the north-south trace of the 28 June 1992 Landers rupture across the Mojave desert, we construct a new velocity model for the Mojave region that features a thin, slow crust. Using this model, we obtain source parameters, including depth and duration, for each of the aftershocks in the profile and, in addition, any significant (M > 3.7) Joshua Tree-Landers aftershock between April 1992 and October 1994 for which coherent TERRAscope… CONTINUE READING
