Seismotectonics of the Pamir

Schurr, B; Ratschbacher, Lothar; Sippl, Christian; Gloaguen, Richard; Yuan, X; Mechie, J.


Based on a 2 year seismic record from a local network, we characterize the deformation of the seismogenic crust of the Pamir in the northwestern part of the India-Asia collision zone. We located more than 6000 upper crustal earthquakes in a regional 3-D velocity model. For 132 of these events, we determined source mechanisms, mostly through full waveform moment tensor inversion of locally and regionally recorded seismograms. We also produced a new and comprehensive neotectonic map of the Pamir,...[Show more]
