Main Article Content
paper presents the analysis of the temporal characteristics of aftershock activity during this period. Astatistical best
fit for the rate of aftershocks is performed using the generalised Omori?s law and the exponential decay law. The
statistical errors for the exponential fit are found to be lower than that of the generalised Omori's fit. The superimposed
oscillations present in the aftershock activity are extracted by differencing the observed aftershock activity
from the statistical fits. The frequencies of these oscillations are found to be 0.062 h?1, 0.078 h-1, 0.102 h-1, 0.118 h-1, 0.141 h-1, 0.164 h-1, 0.233 h-1 and 0.476 h-1. Some of the plausible causes for this kind of oscillations present in the aftershock activity are also discussed in this paper.
