America. Institutional BackgroundFile Size: 7MB. The tsunami caused by the Peru earthquake (Mw ) provoked less damage than by the seismic shaking itself (numerous casualties due to the earthquake in the vicinity of Pisco). However, it propagated across the Pacific Ocean and small waves were observed on one tide gauge in Taiohae Bay (Nuku Hiva, Marquesas, French Polynesia).

We invert seismological data to recover the rupture pattern. Earthquakes in Peru are common occurrences as the country is located in a seismic zone.

The interface between the Nazca and South American tectonic plates is located near the Peruvian coast. The South American Plate is moving over the Nazca Plate at a rate of 77 mm ( in) per year.

Thus, earthquakes occur as thrust faulting on the interface between the two plates, with the South American.Pisco, Peru, earthquake of Aug ; lifeline performance. by Ed. by Alex K. Tang et al. American Society of Civil Engineers, Paperback.
