Time series modelling of the Kobe-Osaka earthquake recordings

Received30 Apr 2001


A problem of great interest in monitoring a nuclear test ban treaty (NTBT) is related to interpreting properly the differences between a waveform generated by a nuclear explosion and that generated by an earthquake. With a view of comparing these two types of waveforms, Singh (1992) developed a technique for identifying a model in time domain. Fortunately this technique has been found useful in modelling the recordings of the killer earthquake occurred in the Kobe-Osaka region of Japan at 5.46 am on 17 January, 1995. The aim of the present study is to show how well the method for identifying a model (developed by Singh (1992)) can be used for describing the vibrations of the above mentioned earthquake recorded at Charters Towers in Queensland, Australia.
