As stated repeatedly, at present it is widespread to inversely evaluate the distributions and histories of fault slips and their influence kinematically from seismograms for both strike-slip and dip-slip earthquakes, but from a dynamics point of view, it is more difficult to treat shallow dip-slip fault rupture than strike-slip one because of the smaller amount of the near-field seismological records of this dip-slip faulting type and also owing to the analytical intricacy in obtaining the mechanical characteristics, especially near the tip of surfacing fault rupture.
99,102,105,106) But, from a rupture and wave dynamics point of view, it has been shown experimentally that, when the primary dip-slip fault rupture, initiated at some depth and propagating upwards in a monolithic linear elastic medium, approaches the free surface, four Rayleigh-type waves may be generated (Fig.
This situation is very unlikely as there is no evidence of post-episode-1 dip-slip fault events with appropriate kinematics to have down-dropped the redbed slivers anywhere along the Norumbega fault system in eastern Maine.
6 and 7b) point to strike-slip nature of the shear zone, the shear zone in the Cretaceous formation east of Pstrazna can be linked with a dip-slip fault in the basement (Figs.
6 and 9), are typical of a flower structure, which is regarded as characteristic deformational style for dip-slip fault zones (cf.
The authors are aware that a dip-slip fault cutting an inclined normal fault may simulate features of an apparent strike-slip fault.
In contrast, for dip-slip faults, the same effect is large in the region located around the epicenter (Somerville et al.
