    The analysis of 12 earthquakes of magnitudes between 1.7 and 3.7 that occurred in 2008 in West Bohemia, Czech Republic reveals that shear rupturing along a fault is accompanied by weak tensile vibrations of the fault. The vibrations are of a narrow frequency band with frequencies distinctly higher than those of shear rupturing. The tensile vibrations decay slowly in time and often resemble resonant waves. They complicate the radiated P waveforms and the P-wave radiation pattern. The tensile vibrations can be observed in waveforms in directions near the nodal lines where the dominance of shear-faulting radiation is lost. The tensile vibrations are probably generated by opening of the fault during shear rupturing or by creating a wing tensile crack at the tip of the fault when shear fracturing stops.
