THE SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS EARTHQUAKE OF 27 JUNE 1929: SEISMOLOGICAL STUDY AND INFERENCE ON TSUNAMI RISK FOR THE SOUTH ATLANTIC
South African Journal of Geology
While no large interplate thrust earthquakes are known at the South Sandwich subduction zone, historical catalogues include a number of earthquakes with reported magnitudes of 7 or more. We present a detailed seismological study of the largest one (27 June 1929; M PAS = 8.3). The earthquake relocates 80 km north of the north-western corner of the arc. Its mechanism, inverted through the PDFM method, features normal faulting on a steeply dipping fault plane ( = 71°, ␦ = 70°, = 272°).
