Comparison of seismic and geodetic strain rates at the margins of the Ordos Plateau, northern China

Abstract:

Differences between seismic and geodetic strain rates can highlight regions of potential seismic hazard. In China, many of the most devastating historical and recent earthquakes have occurred around the margins of the Ordos Plateau. We construct an earthquake catalogue for the region that covers the 700 year period from 1315 to 2015, and is thought to be complete for events with Ms > 6. We use Kostrov summations to determine a seismic strain rate tensor for each of the margins of the Ordos...
