Abstract:

The objective of the Joint Experiment on Earthquake Source Spectra is to improve our ability to distinguish between the explosive and tectonic energy releases in the magnitude range 3 or M or 5. Recording the near-field strong ground motion will help in the more accurate determinations of the earthquake source time function and thus will improve the reliability of the near- and far-field spectra which are still the basic tools in detection work.
