[James N Brune; Michael Stephen Reichle; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. a numerical assessment of the amount of energy released by an earthquake on the basis of its seismic moment, which is the product of the average amount of slip on the fault that produced the earthquake, the area that actually ruptured and the shear modulus of the rocks that failed.

A local small deformation network in Mexicali Valley (Baja California, Mexico) recorded fault slip, seismicity, and deformation produced by the 16 October.

The mapped region straddles the California ‐ Mexico border, which is indi- cated by the near ‐ east ‐ west black line through the center of the map. The epicenter of the April 4,M. Introduction. The ~ 60, km 2 Northern Gulf of California has long been recognized as a diverse and highly productive ecosystem supporting some of the most important fisheries in Mexico.
