Tectonic interpretation of aftershock relocations in eastern Papua New Guinea using teleseismic data and the arrival pattern method

Tregoning, Paul; Sambridge, Malcolm; McQueen, Herbert; Toulmin, S; Nicholson, T


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]
