Focal mechanism and moment tensor determinations based on regional and local waveforms have become routine tasks in seismology. In recent years, considerable effort has been dedicated to extend software capabilities, in particular towards the inclusion of finite‐extent sources and easy, user‐friendly use. Two examples of these efforts are the FMNEAREG and KIWI software packages. Focal Mechanism from NEAr source to REGional distance records (FMNEAREG; Delouis et al., 2008; Maercklin et al., 2011) performs a grid search in order to find pure double‐couple sources, based on a 1D (line) finite‐source representation and complete elastodynamic wave field. The...
