[1] The ground motion data of the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan, earthquake exhibit a striking difference in frequency content between the north and south portions of the rupture zone. In the north, the ground motion is dominated by large lowfrequency displacements with relatively small high-frequency accelerations. The pattern is opposite in the south,with smaller displacements and larger accelerations. We analyze the fault dynamics in light of a fault lubrication mechanism using nearfield seismograms… CONTINUE READING
