Abstract

We present a catalogue of 35 centroid moment tensor solutions for deep earthquakes (h ≥300 km), covering the years 1907-1961, and obtained by applying the inversion algorithm routinely used in the Harvard CMT project to analog records obtained from archived collections of historical seismograms. While the catalogue does not achieve completeness, it provides new insight into as many significant historical events as could be obtained given the available data.
