Geologic Invest. of Australian Earthquakes: Paleoseismicity and the Recurrence of Surface Faulting in the Stable Regions of Continents: A Journal Reprint
Michael Machette (au); Anthony Crone (au)
Earthquakes that occur in the stable regions of continents are very rare compared to those that occur along template margins. Large, relatively infrequent earthquakes in stable continental regions pose a serious but generally unrecognized threat to millions of people in many parts of the world. The historic surface-faulting earthquakes in Australia offer a unique opportunity to use paleoseismology (the geologic study of prehistoric earthquakes) to determine the long-term record of movement on recently active faults. To take advantage of this opportunity, the authors studied Australian earthquakes that produced surface faulting: the March 30, 1986, Marryat Greek earthquake, and the Tennant Creek earthquakes, which all occurred on January 22, 1988.
