On January 22, 1988, three large intraplate earthquakes (with MS 6.3, 6.4, and 6.7) occurred within a 12-hour period near Tennant Creek, Australia. These earthquakes, which occurred over a small interval of time and within a small volume of space, present a unique opportunity to study the rupture process of the class of intraplate earthquakes that occur as multiple main shocks. Broadband displacement and velocity records of body waves from teleseismically recorded data are analyzed to determine… CONTINUE READING
