A seismological study of the eastern New Guinea and the western Solomon Sea regions and its tectonic implications

Abstract:

We use new and pre-existing seismological data to study the neotectonics and the state of stress in the seismic zones of eastern Papua New Guinea and the western Solomon Sea regions. Earthquake hypocentres for the period 1964-90 were relocated, using the Joint Hypocentre Determination (JHD) technique. We show that the T axes of earthquakes in the 100-250 km depth range beneath eastern Papua New Guinea are aligned parallel to the seismic zone, with no seismicity below ≈ 250 km. This intermedia...
