Abstract

We showed that the long-period seismic radiation from the November 29, 1975, Kalapana Hawaii earthquake, which involved seaward displacement of the south flank of Kilauea volcano, was best explained by invoking a near-horizontal single force as the kinematic source of the earthquake [Eissler and Kanamori, 1987]. In particular, the azimuthal dependence of 100-s Love surface waves is difficult to explain by a conventional double-couple source. The unusual Love wave pattern was noted by Ando [1979] but not explained until our suggestion of the single-force source model.
