This contribution to the Electronic Seismologist presents the online SRCMOD database of finite‐fault rupture models for past earthquakes, accessible at http://equake-rc.info/srcmod. Finite‐fault earthquake source inversions have become a standard tool in seismological research. Using seismic data, these inversions image the spatiotemporal rupture evolution on one or more assumed fault segments. If geodetic data are used, the source inversions put constraints on the fault geometry and the static slip distribution (i.e., final displacements over the fault surfaces). Joint inversions, using a combination of available seismic, geodetic, and potentially other data, try to match all observations to develop a more comprehensive...
