Preliminary inversion of seismic moment release along the 2011 Japan earthquake source. Distribution of seismic moment release along the modeled source . Total seismic moment release is 3.95e22 Nm, corresponding to Mw = 9.03. This model naturally implements the seismic source in terms of seismic moment, so that the moment magnitude estimate is not biased by slip-moment conversions.
