183-187

The on-going Meløy earthquake swarm is an intraplate phenomenon which is briefly viewed, using fracture mapping based on satellite imagery (Landsat), other geological data, and stress measurements from neighboring Nordland areas. The bulk of the data is consistent with a model in which the earthquake activity is associated with the development of shallow NNE-SSW trending oblique-slip faults.
