The vertical separation of mainshock rupture and microseismicity at Qeshm island in the Zagros fold-and-thrust belt, Iran

Abstract:

We investigate the depth and geometry of faulting within a cluster of buried, reverse faulting earthquakes that struck Qeshm island, in the Zagros fold-and-thrust belt, over a four year period between November 2005 and July 2009. Of particular interest is our observation that there was a vertical separation between the largest two earthquakes (Mw 5.8 and 5.9), which ruptured the lower parts of a ~10-km thick sedimentary cover, and microseismicity recorded by a local network after the first, M...
