Earthquake recorded in Namibia

On Monday at 19:05:45 (GMT), a tremor with unknown magnitude was recorded in Windhoek. One local seismic station from the Namibian Seismological Network recorded the event and preliminary analyses were performed on this data set. The event was very localised thus other station could not record the event. No phase picking were analysed on the waveform traces (Fig. 1) due to insufficient data set. A minimum of three (3) stations is required to locate an event and in this case only one station recorded the event.

DATA

At present, the only data available at the Geological Survey is for the WIN (Windhoek) station and with this data set available it’s not sufficient to determine the magnitude nor the location of the tremor.
