Based on the waveform data observed by the near field strong-motion stations, the earthquake rupture process can be quickly and stably inverted. This paper collected waveform data recorded by the strong-motion stations constructed recently and reconstructed in Qinghai during the implementation of the National Seismic Intensity Rapid Report and Early Warning Project. Based on these data, we performed the inversion for the rupture process of the MS
6.9 Menyuan, Qinghai, earthquake on January 8, 2022 by the iterative deconvolution and stacking （IDS） method. The rupture model from inversion shows that the rupture extends from the initial rupture point towards the ESE direction, with a duration of about 14 seconds （mainly focus on 2−8 seconds）, a maximum slip of 3.6 m, and a rupture length of about 20 km. The rupture extends longitudinally from the deep to the shallow, which is consistent with the surface rupture found in the field investigation. The spatial distribution of aftershock sequences shows significant segmentation characteristics, indicating complex tectonic transitions in the rupture zone.
