Welcome to the SRCMOD website, an online database of finite-fault rupture models of past earthquakes! These earthquake source models are obtained from inversion or modeling of seismic, geodetic and other geophysical data, and characterize the space-time distribution of kinematic rupture parameters.

  • Please join us in our efforts to collect and disseminate finite-source rupture models by using this database for your own research, contributing your own rupture model that you obtain(ed) in your research, sending us feedback, comments, suggestions and improvements to this database.
  • You can access the source models by searching the database based on meta information or by browsing all the models through quick link: List all models.
  • The page for each source model lists the fundamental parameters, displays an image of the final slip on the fault, and contains links for downloading.
  • See the File Formats page for details on the conventions used for the MATLAB-binaries and the ASCII-file formatting.
  • Contributions to this database are highly appreciated. We hope that the number of source models will increase as researchers send us their inversion/modeling results, not only for recent, but also for past earthquakes.
  • We encourage contributors to prepare their source models in a format similar to the *mat-format explained in the File Formats page.
  • You can upload the data directly by using Upload tool.
  • Please send us your inquiries, questions, comments, and suggestions using Feedback form. Also, if you discover any inconsistency or error in the source model or the meta data, please inform us immediately.
