3 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group Svalbard earthquake (21.feb.2008) recorded at Tromsø station

4 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group Svalbard earthquake (21.feb. 2008) record at Kings Bay (Spitsbergen).

5 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group Svalbard earthquake (21.feb. 2008) record at Bjørnøya station.

6 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group Svalbard earthquake (21.feb. 2008) record at Kongsberg station.

7 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group

8 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group The earthquake occurred likely between the Billedfjord and Lomfjorden faults. More than 2000 aftershocks are recorded.

9 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group More than 200 aftershocks are located.

10 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group MT-inversion on regional stations (depth fixed to 15 km)

11 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group MT-inversion on local stations

12 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group Focal mechanism based on the first motion polarities (left) and based on the slip inversion (right)

13 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group

14 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group (Ingolfsson, 2007)

15 Department of Earth Science, Geodynamics Group (Ingolfsson, 2007) The focal mechanism is compatible with E-W oriented maximum horizontal compression. Fault rupture area is roughly 9 x 11 km.
