[1] IISEE's CMTs, Aftershock Distributions, Fault Planes, and Rupture Processes for recent large earthquakes in the world

The IISEE has started a project to determine the following earthquake
information for recent large (Mw>=7.2) earthquakes in the world by the
analytical techniques developed by the IISEE staff members and visiting
researchers.
- Centroid moment tensor (CMT)
- Aftershock distribution and corresponding fault plane
- Rupture process
We have also developed software to perform strong ground motion
simulation for seismic bedrock using stochastic Green's function method.
Our earthquake information together with information issued by other
some institutions is available at the followings:
