Tectonic interpretation of aftershock relocations in eastern Papua New Guinea using teleseismic data and the arrival pattern method
The arrival pattern (AP) method and teleseismic data have been used to relocate aftershocks following three major (Mw > = 7.8) interplate earthquakes that occurred in eastern Papua New Guinea in 2000 November. The first event was an Mw = 8.0 strike-slip earthquake that ruptured the Weitin fault over a length of ∼100 km. No aftershocks were located in the upper 15 km, suggesting that the accumulated strain was fully released in this event. The two subsequent Mw = 7.8 thrust events occurred on...[Show more]
