Summary

A short review of simple theoretical models for extended earthquake sources visualized as single and multiple dislocations is presented. Formulas for the duration of the radiation δt i s from the starting point of the destruction up to the region forming the amplitude maxima of body waves are given. A method for determining some basic parameters of extended earthquake sources (length and depth of the dislocation, azimuth of the first dislocation and the angles between every two consecutive dislocations) from the seismogram data for δtis is presented. The procedure is applied to yield some practical results.
