An enhanced image of the Pamir Hindu Kush seismic zone from relocated earthquake hypocentres

Abstract:

We determine the shape of the seismic zone in the Pamir-Hindu Kush region defined by [30-42°N, 68-78°E] by obtaining improved hypocentral locations with 90% confidence limits of less than 30 km (the depth error bar for most of the earthquakes) of about 6000 shallow and intermediate-depth earthquakes. Available S and depth-phase arrival times are also used together with the P-wave arrival times in the joint hypocentre determination technique. To obtain the best possible hypocentral locations, ...
