Record #143140:

Non-double-couple earthquake mechanisms at the Hengill-Grensdalur volcanic complex, south-west Iceland / B.R. Julian, A.D. Miller, G.R. Foulger.

Title: Non-double-couple earthquake mechanisms at the Hengill-Grensdalur volcanic complex, south-west Iceland / B.R. Julian, A.D. Miller, G.R. Foulger.
Author(s): Julian, B. R.
Miller, A. D.
Foulger, G. R.
Date: 1997.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (1997.), Vol. 24(7) (1997)
Abstract: Hengill-Grensdalur area generates frequent small non-double-couple earthquakes with explosive volumetric components. Three-component digital recordings of 4000 earthquakes were collected on purpose-designed 32-station network in 1991 and focal mechanisms determined for 100 best recorded earthquakes. Many mechanisms are consistent with simultaneous shear and tensile faulting, although some events require crack closing or other explanations.
