Powerful Earthquake Doublet Strike Peru-Brazil Border

Posted by feww on November 25, 2015

Two M7.6 Earthquakes Strike SE Peru

The deep-focus earthquake doublet struck at a depth of about 600 km, approximately 1,000km east of the Peru-Chile Trench within the subducted oceanic lithosphere of the Nazca plate, where the Nazca plate subducts to the east under the South America plate at a velocity of about 69 mm/y, reported USGS/EHP.

The doublet occurred 5 minutes apart; separated about 50 km horizontally, and just over 6km vertically. The second earthquake was most probably triggered by the first event, said the report.
