Shallow subduction zone earthquakes and their tsunamigenic potential


INTRODUCTION SUMMARY We have examined the source spectra of all shallow subduction zone earthquakes from 1992 to 1996 with moment magnitude 7.0 or greater, as well as some other interesting events, in the period range 1-20 s, by computing moment rate functions of teleseismic P waves. After comparing the source spectral characteristics of 'tsunami… (More)
