Fig. 10

Peak slip velocity distribution for the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake for Cases 1–4. The star indicates the JMA hypocenter, which is the rupture starting point assumed for the waveform inversion. The slip velocity of each subfault for each time window was estimated by dividing the amount of slip by the width of the time window (0.25 s). The largest velocity was then selected from the 12 time windows. Thus, it should be noted that the peak slip velocity shown here is a value averaged over the time window of 0.25 s
