Main Article Content
the great Assam earthquake of August 15, 1950 exhibits three linear segments.
A secondary aftershock sequence has also been reported; the strain
release curve in this case is also linear. The b value, using the maximum
likelihood method of Utsu, for the sequence is 0.52 ± 0.095. The fault plane
solution shows that the fault strikes almost cast-west and dips northward
at an angle of 80°; the motion is predominently strike slip (right lateral
type). The spatial distribution of aftershocks shows two main centers of
activity at the two ends of the probable fault.
