Aftershock Map for San Juan Bautista M4.3
07/02/2007 12:58 PDT
The first figure below is a map, the second figure is a cross-section. The map shows the epicenters and magnitudes of the San Juan Bautista main shock (large magenta circle), two weeks of aftershocks (smaller magenta circles), and 10 years of background seismicity (blue circles). The red lines are mapped faults, and the colored background indicates elevation. The dashed brown lines contain the earthquakes whose hypocenters are plotted as a function of depth and distance along strike in the cross-section. The dashed dark-blue ellipse approximates the rupture area of the earthquake, as inferred from the PGV rupture directivity and the M4.3 magnitude. For this earthquake, the rupture direction agrees with the offset of the aftershocks, although the aftershocks are located slightly above and outside of the rupture area.
