Seismic source parameter determination using regional intermediate-period surface waves

Abstract:

In general, the depths of shallow earthquakes are poorly resolved in current catalogues. Variations in depth of ±10 km can significantly alter the tectonic interpretation of such earthquakes. If the depth of a seismic event is in error then moment tensor estimates can also be significantly altered. In the context of nuclear-test-ban monitoring, a seismic event whose depth can be confidently shown to exceed say, 10km, is unlikely to be an explosion.

Surface wave excitation is sensit...
