Get this from a library. Three component long-period data for the South Puget Sound, Washington earthquake. [Glenn Eli Baker; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Teleseismic P, SH, and SV first motions and SH to SV amplitude ratios recorded at eight teleseismic receivers from the magnitude Olympia, Washington, earthquake in combination with data from three stations at regional distances were utilized in a grid testing routine to constrain focal mechanism.

Introduction. The problem is that earthquakes start out many miles beneath the surface, too deep for us to observe them directly.

So we study them from afar by (1) observing the geological changes at the ground surface, (2) analyzing the symphony of earthquake vibrations recorded on seismographs, and (3) monitoring the tectonic changes in.

The Northern Pacific built its main line from Kalama on the Columbia River to Tacoma on Puget Sound, closely following the Cowlitz Trail route through the South Sound country. The Lewis County Historical Museum, and the Tenino Depot Museum are both housed in classic depots dating from the heyday of the Northern Pacific Railroad.

With the modern three-component networks in the Northwest and adjacent parts of Canada, it is possible to determine the push or pull relationship at many stations, leading to information about whether the earthquake is on a reverse fault, a normal fault, or a strike-slip fault (Figure ).

SEISMIC WAVES AND EARTHQUAKE LOCATION J.R. Kayal Geological Survey of India, 27, J.L. Nehru Road Road, Kolkata – email: [email protected] SEISMIC WAVES Two basic types of elastic waves or seismic waves are generated by an earthquake; these are body waves and surface waves.

example, km [ mi] of a m [ ft] high cliff was dislodged into Puget Sound near Tacoma during the Earthquake of Olympia, Washington. Settlement and liquifaction may occur on filled land where a high water table exists. Such areas exist along the Port Orchard to Retsil area and parts of the south Bremerton area.

The first step in hazard assessment is to identify the probable seismic sources around a given site. Figure 3 shows the seismo-tectonic setup of Manipur (GSI ) superposed with the epicentres of past can be seen from figures 3 and 4 that there are many active faults surrounding Manipur.

These faults can be attributed to tectonic activity in the. Errors brought to the attention of the publisher and verified to the satisfaction of the publisher will be corrected in future editions.

quake at a.m. on Feb. 28, registered on the Richter Scale and was felt throughout the greater Puget Sound region. That quake gave staff members a forewarning of what it was like to experience a sizable seismic shaking, as the epicenter is just 50 miles south of Bremerton.
