  author={Laura E. Jones and Donald V. Heimberger},
Stress-drops for small to moderately sized earthquakes in Southern California are found to vary systematically with sourcedepth and location (tectonic environment). We determine highquality fault-plane solutions, plus depth and source duration, for 17 significant (M > 3.9) aftershocks associated with the June 28, 1992 Big Bear sequence, including the more recent April 4, 1994 19:04 GMT Mw 4.6 Lake Arrowhead aftershock, and a Mw 4.2 Banning Pass event which occurred on May 31, 1993 at 08:55 GMT… CONTINUE READING
