Original SATSI library code by Jeanne Hardebeck and Andy Michael; see Hardebeck and Michael  for details. MSATSI package uses MATLAB routine sh.m for appropriate calculation of the horizontal stresses, developed by Bjorn Lund and John Townend; see Lund and Townend  for details. The extensive description of the package together with examples is presented in Martínez-Garzón et al. . The MSATSI package is described in the paper in Seismological Research Letters. If you find the MSATSI useful in your research, please acknowledge this work by providing a reference to the following studies:

MSATSI is a MATLAB© software package that allows performing the stress inversion using earthquake focal mechanisms. MSATSI is based on the C library SATSI created by Hardebeck and Michael  (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/software/#SATSI). MSATSI provides an framework for calculating the deviatioric stress tensor together with its uncertainties using bootstrap resampling method. It also allows displaying the stress inversion results using a variety of plots.
The MSATSI package is composed of two MATLAB functions. The first one msatsi.m performs actual stress inversion and the second one, msatsi_plot.m, provides the graphical visualization of stress inversion results calculated with msatsi.
Main features of MSATSI package are:
- Simple and comprehensive handling of input and output stress inversion data.
- Variety of graphical representations of the stress inversion results: stereonets, stereotraces, profiles, world stress map-alike plots, stereomaps and stereovolumes.
- Versatile and adjustable graphical output
- User friendly interface through the intensive use of MATLAB properties.
