Small-aperture, strong-motion arrays are of great importance for earthquake engineering and engineering seismology. Their capabilities of recording broadband ground motion over a wide dynamic range provide insights into details of fracture processes at the earthquake source (e.g., Spudich and Cranswick 1984), the heterogeneity levels of the medium (e.g., Sato and Fehler 1998), site effects (e.g., Ansal 1999), and the spatial variability of earthquake ground motion (e.g., Abrahamson and Bolt 1987). In addition, their wide dynamic range provides the opportunity to investigate the transition of strong to weak motion,...
