Application of Waveform Modeling to Determine Focal Mechanisms of the 1993 Tapu Earthquake and Its Aftershocks

Abstract

To determine the focal mechanisms of the 1993 Tapu earthquake sequence by applying the multiple station moment tensor inversion is the main objective of this paper. Digital strong motion seismograms recorded at short distance are used. The realistic layered model obtained by Ho and Shin (1994) is slightly modified to calculate the Green¡¦s functions and then the synthetic waveforms for moment tensor inversion.
