We investigated the source scaling of earthquakes (Mw 4.6-8.9), mostly from the Taiwan orogenic belt, and made a global compilation of source parameters to examine the scaling self-similarity. Finite-fault slip models (12 dip-slip and 7 strike-slip) using mainly dense strong-motion data and teleseismic data from Taiwan were utilized. Seven additional earthquakes ( M> 7) were included for further ex- amination of scaling of large events. We determined the effective length and width for the… Expand
