FMNEAR general schema

The webservice allows you to upload your local/regional waveform data and to invert/model them in terms of Focal Mechanism (FM). Computation is carried out remotely at Géoazur and the results can be visualized and/or downloaded on your local computer.

The FMNEAR webservice was developed at the Géoazur laboratory (CNRS, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur) under two main supporting actions:

The scientific codes were developed by Bertrand Delouis (NERA project) and the webservice was built by Jérôme Gérakis (Virtual Observatory, OCA), under a framework defined by Bertrand Delouis and Anne Deschamps.

If you publish/show results obtained with this webservice, please include reference "FMNEAR webservice, Delouis, Gerakis, Deschamps, Geoazur/Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur". Concerning the method FMNEAR, please include reference to the article: "Delouis, B., 2014.
