Interseismic strain accumulation across the Manyi fault (Tibet) prior to the 1997 M-w 7.6 earthquake

Abstract:

The coseismic displacements caused by the M w 7.6, 1997 Manyi strike-slip earthquake have been extensively studied. In order to assess whether the current deformation around the Manyi fault is due to one or more postseismic mechanisms and to constrain the rate-state models of afterslip, an estimate of the interseismic motion across the fault prior to the earthquake is needed. We use ESA ERS data to form 20 interferograms covering the five year period of 1992-1997, which are combined using a m...
