Source parameters of the Taimyr earthquake of June 9, 1990



The results of calculation of the seismic moment tensor (in the double-couple approximation) for the earthquake that occurred in the northeastern Taimyr Peninsula on June 9, 1990, from amplitude spectra of the surface waves, are presented. The obtained results are of interest for works related to construction of geodynamic models for the Taimyr region, for studies of the stress-strain state of the Earth’s crust, and for assessments of the seismic hazard of this territory.
