Buried rupture earthquake
A buried rupture earthquake, or blind earthquake (c.f., surface rupture earthquake) is an earthquake with non-visible offset of the ground surface when an earthquake rupture along a fault does not affect the Earth's surface. See also blind thrust earthquake, a close concept.
Buried rupture earthquakes and ground motion
Recorded ground motions of large surface-rupture earthquakes are weaker than the ground motions from buried rupture earthquakes.
