Seismic Source Mechanism in Northern Thailand

During September 1997 to January 2000

  • Abstract

  • The idea of downloading seismic signals to any Personal Computer elsewhere to analyze and determine preliminary solution of seismic parameters e.g. origin time, epicenter, and magnitude, had been initiated. To achieve this aim, an excellent computer software called DIMAS (Display, Interactive Manipulation and Analysis of Seismograms) was applied to solve the seismic source mechanism of northern Thailand, detected by the IRIS and DIMAS at CHTO during September1997 to January 2000. This software cannot only determine the basic parameters of an earthquake but also identify the focal mechanism that caused the event.

  • During this period, it was found that most earthquakes occurred in the area were resulted from the mechanism mainly of normal faults. Their major trend is northeast-southwest which is the same direction of major faulted graben in northern Thailand. The collision of the Indo-Australian plate and the Eurasian plate is considered to be the main driving force that has caused faulting and induced seismicity in this region.
