We study the stress transferred by the June 27, 1988, M = 5.3 and August 8, 1989, M = 5.4 Lake Elsman earthquakes, the largest events to strike within 15 km of the future Loma Prieta rupture zone during 74 years before the 1989 M = 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake. Monthly measurements since mid‐1981 of distance from a geodetic station located 11 km from the epicenter of the Loma Prieta earthquake (M s = 7.1; October 17, 1989) to three stations 30 to 40 km distant provides an unusually complete record of deformation in the epicentral region in the years prior to an earthquake.

Many of the changes were well documented and their possible origins can be examined in some detail. At the northwestern end of the aftershock zone earthquakes that apparently occurred off the main rupture plane exhibit mechanisms with predominantly reverse slip on planes nearly parallel to the San Andreas fault. The dip of the aftershock zone is parallel to the main shock slip plane and includes the main shock hypocenter. The tremors were felt for a duration of approximately 20 seconds. Constraining fault constitutive behavior with slip and stress heterogeneity. Coseismic deformation and dislocation models of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake derived From Global Positioning System measurements. Foreshocks. This behavior is consistent with observations of aftershock sequences for other dip‐slip events and also with studies indicating that main shock rupture zones are at all other times mostly aseismic.
