Estimation of Source Parameters of Local Earthquakes in Jammu and Kashmir, India
      G. M. Bhat, Yudhbir Singh, Sandeep Sharma
Abstract: The local earthquake events recorded north of Panjal thrust (=Main Central thrust) and Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) by the four broadband seismological observatories located at Jammu, Poonch, Duru and Bani in Jammu and Kashmir from January to May, 2012 have coda magnitudes ranging from 1.7 to 3.8 were used to compute source parameters namely; seismic moment, source radius, and stress drop. These source parameters were computed with the help of Seisan software following Brune’s source model. The seismic moments calculated for these events range from 4.47x1018 to 6.31x1021 dyne-cm; source radii from 0.45 to 2.08 km and stress drops from 0.08to 28.4 bars.
