Multi-segment rupture in the July 11th 1889 Chilik earthquake (Mw 8.0-8.3), Kazakh Tien Shan, interpreted from remote-sensing, field survey, and palaeoseismic trenching

Abstract:

The July 11th 1889 Chilik earthquake (Mw 8.0-8.3) forms part of a remarkable sequence of large earthquakes in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries in the Northern Tien Shan. Despite its importance, the source of the 1889 earthquake remains unknown, though the macroseismic epicentre is sited in the Chilik valley, ~100 km southeast of Almaty, Kazakhstan (~2 million population).
