Corrections of the Indian gauge data used for early assessments of the great 26 December 2004 earthquake

Singh et al., AGU

This resource is an abstract. This study re-evaluates slip velocity over the region of the December 26, 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake. Using new data, the authors found that a mixed mode of slip occurred in the region, with half the total slip occurring seismically in less than five minutes after the rupture arrival, and the rest developing over the next 30 minutes.
