[SCG20-05] Full moment tensor inversion for the large deep earthquakes
Keywords:Deep earthquake, Moment tensor, Isotropic component, Non-double couple component
For the 1994 Bolivia and the 2015 off Bonin Islands deep earthquakes, the isotropic components of the optimal solutions were in the ranges of the uncertainties obtained from the bootstrap analyses. For the 2013 Sea of Okhotsk deep earthquake, the isotopic component of the optimal solution was about 3 per sent (implosive) of the seismic moment. The uncertainty estimated from the bootstrap analysis was on the order of 1 per cent. This result is consistent with Okal (2013, AGU), although further uncertainty evaluations are necessary.
Hara and Kawakatsu (2015, SSJ) calculated the non-double couple component of the deviatoric moment tensor (epsilon, Giardini, 1983, 1984) of the sets of solutions obtained by the bootstrap analyses. The relatively large non-double couple components (around -0.08) were obtained for the 2013 Sea of Okhotsk deep earthquake, which implies the possibility that the moment tensor for this event is affected by velocity structures such as anisotropy in the source region.
