Abstract

In two earlier papers (Wallace et al., 1983, 1985), we discussed the evidence for tectonic release from underground nuclear explosions on Pahute Mesa at the Nevada Test Site (NTS) as observed in long-period body waves. It has been shown for some time that the nonisotropic component of the surface waves from most of these events could be explained by an equivalent double-couple source; namely strike-slip motion on north-striking faults.
