This is a preliminary UCB moment tensor report for the swarm located
12 km N of Burney, CA on December 20, 2000. Moment tensor solutions for the
four largest events, Mw3.9, Mw3.7, Mw4.3 and Mw4.4 follow. All events have
northwest striking normal-type mechanisms and have a best fitting source 
depth of 5km.
