Abstract (in english)
   Parameters of finite seismic source model were determined for a set of 36 selected events of the West Bohemia 2000 earthquakes swarm (Ml from 1.7 to 3.0) using stopping phases method. Two stopping phases are generated along the source border where the rupture process terminates and these phases form Hilbert transform pair, which is also the criterion for their identification. Circular and elliptical source models were considered and corresponding source parameters were calculated by inverting interpreted stopping phases delays. As generalization of circular to elliptical model was found to be statistically insignificant, only results related to the circular source including error estimates are presented. Our results are in a good agreement with previously published theoretical formula concerning source radius and magnitude and also fairly well confirm general theoretical assumption about constant stress drop.
   The determined stress drop ranges between 1 - 10 MPa with the typical value of 2.4 MPa.
