Aftershock zones of large shallow earthquakes: fault dimensions, aftershock area expansion and scaling relations

Abstract:

We determine the aftershock areas from relocated hypocentres for 64 dip-slip and eight strike-slip earthquakes in the period 1977-1996 together with those for three recent earthquakes, the 1998 Antarctic plate earthquake, the 1999 Izmit, Turkey earthquake and the 2000 Wharton Basin earthquake. We also include the data for 27 strike-slip earthquakes from Pegler and Das (1996). We find that the location of the hypocentre is essentially random along strike for both strike-slip and dip-slip earth...
