Abstract:

A continuous analysis of LASA long period data has shown that the Rayleigh wave detection rate is quite poor for events located to the south of the array and to be best for events from the northwest. A comparison of Kurile earthquakes recorded by LASA and NORSAR indicates that the Rayleigh wave detection rates are similar for events with body wave magnitudes greater than or equal to 4.0 and that surface waves from such small events are consistently detected.
