Simple and reliable finite fault solutions for large earthquakes using the W-phase: The Maule (M w = 8.8) and Tohoku (M w = 9.0) earthquakes

Benavente, Roberto; Cummins, Phillip


We explore the ability of W-phase waveform inversions to recover a first-order coseismic slip distribution for large earthquakes. To date, W-phase inversions for point sources provide fast and accurate moment tensor solutions for moderate to large events.
