Abstract: The three largest events of the 1997 Umbria-Marche (Italy) sequence occurred on September 26, 1997 at 00:33 GMT (Event 1, MW=5.7) and 09:40 GMT (Event 2, MW=6.0) in the Colfiorito area and on the October 14, 1997 at 15:23 (Event 3, MW=5.6) in the Sellano area. The availability of different sets of geodetic and seismological data allowed several studies to characterize the extended sources of events 1-3. In this work, I review some of the studies that obtain the properties of the seismic sources by inversion of available data. Generally these studies assume the seismic sources as dislocations or distributions of equivalent point sources in elastic half-spaces. Following their chronological order, they model increasing complexities of the sources by using an increasing number of data. Some of the differences between results obtained, such as the top edge depth estimates, are shown to be due to the different approaches used. Commonly a 1-D crustal model is used in inverting strongmotion data. Instead homogeneous elastic half-spaces are mainly assumed in inverting geodetic data to obtain the three main sources of the 1997 Umbria-Marche sequence. Assuming the same crustal structure is important to make comparable results obtained analyzing seismological data or geodetic data separately, as it has been done till now for this sequence.
