An integrated study of reservoir-induced seismicity and Landsat imagery at Lake Kariba, Africa.


The depth and seismic source parameters of the three largest reservoir-induced earthquakes associated with the impoundment of Lake Kariba, Africa, were determined using a formalism of the generalized inverse technique. The events, which exceeded magnitudes, mb, of 5.5, consisted of the foreshock and main event (0640 and 0901 GMT, 23 September 1963) and the principal aftershock (0703 GMT, 25 September 1963). Landsat imagery of the reservoir region was exploited as an independent source of information to determine the active fault location in conjunction with the teleseismic source parameters.-from Authors
