Spatiotempoal Distribution of Source Rupture Process for Turkey Earthquake (Ms=7.4)

November 12, 1999 Turkey Earthquake

Joint inversion was made using strong-ground-motion data (provided by DAD (ERD)) and teleseismic data (provided by IRIS-DMC)

The source process is characterized by an asymmetric bilateral rupture propagation and smooth dislocation motion.
