From: Rupture process of the main shock of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake with special reference to damaging ground motions: waveform inversion with empirical Green’s functions

Fig. 1

Fault plane assumed in the inversion and locations of strong-motion stations plotted on a topological map by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan. The long rectangle oriented in N52E direction indicates the fault plane assumed in the inversion. The star is the rupture starting point assumed in the inversion, which is the hypocenter. The open rectangles indicate the hypocenters of the small events used in the analysis (EGF1–EGF4). The solid triangles are the locations of strong-motion stations used in the inversion. The open triangles represent the locations of strong-motion stations used in “Discussion” section
