Seismicity, faults, and topography of the region where the Nov. 8, 1997 Tibet earthquake occurred. The USGS events from Jan. 1973 to prior to mainshock (white circles) are plotted along with PDE mainshock and aftershock locations (shaded circles). The long period surface wave solution from Velasco et al. (1999) gives a strike-slip mechanism. The earthquake occurred west of the mapped trace of the Kun Lun fault and is 750 km south of the Lop Nor Nuclear Test Site. Shaded triangles are digital stations within the region.
