The Variability and Interpretation of Earthquake Source Mechanisms in The Geysers Geothermal Field From a Bayesian Standpoint Based on the Choice of a Noise Model

Mustać, Marija; Tkalčić, Hrvoje; Burky, Alexander L.


Moment tensor (MT) inversion studies of events in The Geysers geothermal field mostly focused on microseismicity and found a large number of earthquakes with significant non‐double‐couple (non‐DC) seismic radiation. Here we concentrate on the largest events in the area in recent years using a hierarchical Bayesian MT inversion. Initially, we show that the non‐DC components of the MT can be reliably retrieved using regional waveform data from a small number of stations. Subsequently, we present...[Show more]
