Thanks Peter, you bet I find it interesting. Here is the paper: Compressive sensing of the Tohoku-Oki Mw 9.0 earthquake: Frequency-dependent rupture modes by Huajian Yao, Peter Gerstoft, Peter M. Shearer, and Christoph Mecklenbräuker. The abstract reads:
Compressive sensing (CS) is a technique for finding sparse signal representations to underdetermined linear measurement equations . We use CS to locate seismic sources during the rupture of the 2011 Tohoku-Oki Mw9.0 earthquake in Japan from teleseismic P waves recorded by an array of stations in the United States. The seismic sources are located by minimizing the l_2 norm of the difference between the observed and modeled waveforms penalized by the l_1 norm of the seismic source vector. The resulting minimization problem is convex and can be solved efficiently. Our results show clear frequency-dependent rupture modes with high frequency energy radiation dominant in the down dip region and low frequency radiation in the up dip region , which may because d by differences in rupture behavior ( more intermittent or continuous) at the slab interface due to heterogeneous frictional properties
