Spectral analysis of teleseismic body phases at several azimuths was used to determine the moment, fault length, dislocation, stress-drop, and radiated energy of the Borrego Mountain earthquake. The results agree well with the same parameters obtained from the surface fracture and aftershock distribution and local observations of radiated energy.
