The San Simeon earthquake occurred on a previously unknown blind thrust fault. No surface rupture associated with the earthquake has been
identified. It was recorded at more than 100 strong motion stations out to distances of over 300 km with relatively few stations at less
than 50 km distance. The biggest acceleration of 0.48 g was recorded at the Templeton hospital 38 km SE of the epicenter. Data demonstrates
strong directivity effect in the direction of rupture propagation. Combined inversion of GPS and seismic waveform data allowed constructing
a finite-source model of the earthquake.
