Historical and recent large megathrust earthquakes in Chile
Recent earthquakes in Chile, 2014, Mw 8.2 Iquique, 2015, Mw 8.3 Illapel and 2016, Mw 7.6 Chiloe have put in evidence some problems with the straightforward application of ideas about seismic gaps, earthquake periodicity ...
Estimating earthquake risk in Jamaica
A review of the history of earthquake observations in Jamaica is presented and the observed seismicity of the Jamaica region is discussed in the context of regional tectonics.
Earthquakes and Volcanoes
This publication focuses on earthquakes and volcanoes. The processes involved in their generation are reviewed and a number of precautionary measures which should be taken before, during and after an earthqquake are outlined. ...
The first since 1960: a large event in the Valdivia segment of the Chilean subduction zone, the 2016 M7.6 Melinka earthquake
We present results for joint kinematic inversion of high-rate GPS, strong motion and InSAR data for the 2016 M7.6 Melinka earthquake. We show that the source is a compact 35 s long rupture with 5.0 +/- 0.15 m of peak slip. ...
Andean earthquakes triggered by the 2010 Maule, Chile (Mw 8.8) earthquake: Comparisons of geodetic, seismic and geologic constraints
The Maule, Chile, (Mw 8.8) earthquake on 27 February 2010 triggered deformation events over a broad area, allowing investigation of stress redistribution within the upper crust following a mega-thrust subduction event. We ...
Damage assessment of the 2015 Mw 8.3 Illapel earthquake in the North-Central Chile
(Springer Netherlands, 2019)
© 2018, Springer Nature B.V.Destructive megathrust earthquakes, such as the 2015 Mw 8.3 Illapel event, frequently affect Chile. In this study, we assess the damage of the 2015 Illapel Earthquake in the Coquimbo Region ...
