Additional inversion cases to examine the effect of the strike and dip angles. The top two panels show the fault models with two fault planes, one having a strike angle of 205° and the other having a strike angle of 232°. The former fault was extended from the hypocenter toward the northeast, for 2 km (top left) or 4 km (top right), and then connected to the fault with the strike angle of 232°. In the top-left case, the latter fault had a dip angle of 78°, consistent with the surface fault trace. In the top-right case, the latter fault had a dip angle of 72°. The bottom two panels show the corresponding final slip distributions
