Abstract

Teleseismic, long-period P-waveforms are modeled to obtain estimates of the source parameters for the May 2, 1983 Coalinga earthquake. The best fitting focal mechanism is: strike = 297 ± 5°, dip = 64 ± 1°, rake = 70 ± 10°. The moment is estimated to be 3.8 ± 1.5 X 10^(25) dyne-cm with a slip duration of 5 ± 1 sec. The depth is estimated at 12 ± 2 km.
