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.
