More papers on paleoseismology and active tectonics out now

It’s not been long since I’ve listed some recent paleoseismology papers, but it seems like it’s publishing season. So here is more stuff to read during the holidays…

More active tectonics than paleoseismology, but I find these interesting:

  • Fletcher, J. M., Teran, O. J., Rockwell, T. K., Oskin, M. E., Hudnut, K. W., Mueller, K. J., … & González-García, J. (2014). Assembly of a large earthquake from a complex fault system: Surface rupture kinematics of the 4 April 2010 El Mayor–Cucapah (Mexico) Mw 7.2 earthquake. Geosphere, GES00933-1.
  • Herman, M. W., Herrmann, R. B., Benz, H. M., & Furlong, K. P. (2014). Using Regional Moment Tensors to Constrain the Kinematics and Stress Evolution of the 2010-2013 Canterbury Earthquake Sequence, South Island, New Zealand. Tectonophysics.

The following paper is not related to paleoseismology, but still it’s an interesting story. In a tragical accident, the driver of an excavator was killed in Euskirchen, W Germany, in January this year when he hit a WWII bomb which exploded. The bomb was a 4000 lb blockbuster bomb and the explosion was so strong that it could be heard in up to 20 km distance. The shock wave was recorded by various seismic stations in the surroundings and K.-G. Hinzen of the Bensberg Earthquake Observatory reports on its seismic effects:
