Tectonic Stress Field in Central Europe



Sclieidegger's s t a t i s t i c a l method for the tectonic interp
r e t a t i o n of e a r t h q u a k e f a u l t plane solutions is applied t o r e c e n t l y published
solutions of e a r t h q u a k e s which occurred in two areas of Central Europe.
The results of t h e calculations show t h a t in Southwestern Germany, east of
t h e e a s t e r n border of t h e Rhino Trench, t h e tectonic stress s t a t e is a tensional
one, while in Belgium it seems to bo compressional. The P and T
directions, however, are very similar in b o t h regions.
