AbstractFocal mechanism was determined for 100 earthquakes which occurred in the Tadzhik depression during the period 1955-59. A dipole with moment was indicated as the appropriate mechanism in 98 cases; in the two remaining cases a single force was found. It was shown that the fault planes determined by seismic means agreed very well with surface faulting. It was also shown that a method which depended on studying the sequence of observations at a single station would have had no success in this area.
