Crustal geoelectric structure and the focal depths of major stable continental region earthquakes in India

The Indian peninsular shield, in particular the Deccan Volcanic Province, has experienced significant seismicity during the past three decades, with the Koyna (M w = 6.3), Latur (M w = 6.2) and

Investigations of continued reservoir triggered seismicity at Koyna, India

Abstract Koyna, located in the Deccan Volcanic Province in western India, is the most significant site of reservoir triggered seismicity (RTS) globally. The largest RTS event of M 6.3 occurred here

Investigations related to scientific deep drilling to study reservoir-triggered earthquakes at Koyna, India

Abstract Artificial water reservoir-triggered earthquakes have continued at Koyna in the Deccan Traps province, India, since the impoundment of the Shivaji Sagar reservoir in 1962. Existing models,

Thermal conductivity of Deccan flood basalts

Rock thermal conductivity is an essential parameter for the determination of heat flow of the Earth and geothermal modelling studies. It has important applications in hydrocarbon exploration,

Seismic signatures of a proterozoic thermal plume below southwestern part of the Cuddapah Basin, Dharwar craton

Origin and evolutionary history of the Cuddapah Basin in SE India has remained a subject of considerable speculation whether it was evolved through vertical tectonic movements, extentional stretching

Complexity in elucidating crustal thermal regime in geodynamically affected areas: A case study from the Deccan large igneous province (western India)

Complexity in the earth’s crustal structure plays an important role in governing earth’s thermal and geodynamic behavior. In the present study, an attempt has been made taking insights from our



Fluids below the hypocentral region of Latur Earthquake, India: Geophysical indicators

A set of geophysical measurements and observations was undertaken to investigate the nature of the crust beneath the epicentral region of the deadly Mw 6.1 Latur earthquake of September 30, 1993.

The 1993 Killari earthquake in central India: A new fault in Mesozoic basalt flows?

The Mw = 6.1 1993 Killari earthquake in central India was one of the deadliest earthquakes to occur in a stable continental area. It had a centroid 2.6 km deep and ruptured to the surface. A good fit

A Brief Update on the Focal Depths of Intracontinental Earthquakes and their Correlations with Heat Flow and Tectonic Age

This paper summarizes the characteristics of focal depths of intracontinental earthquakes based on a compilation of reliably determined depths reported in the past five years. Since the study of Chen

Rapid eruption of the Deccan flood basalts at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary

The accumulation of flood basalts of the Deccan Traps, western India, is one of the most remarkable volcanic provinces on Earth in sheer extent and volume. These rocks are akin in composition and

Regional variations of the cutoff depth of seismicity in the crust and their relation to heat flow and large inland-earthquakes

More than 8, 000 earthquakes have been relocated to derive regional variations of the seismic-aseismic boundary in the mid-crust of the northern Kinki district of Japan. The boundary depths are

Crustal Structure Along Kavali-Udipi Profile in the Indian Peninsular Shield from Deep Seismic Sounding

Deep Seismic Sounding (DSS) studies were initiated for the first time in India under a 3-year Indo-Soviet collaboration agreement starting 1972, along a 600km long roughly ENE-WSW profile which lies

Australian Seismicity - The Puzzle of the not so Stable Continent

Data obtained in the last 20 years show that tectonic models requiring the Australian continent to be stable and aseismic have to be modified. It is now apparent that the continent experiences
