Several source parameters (depth, scalar moment, rupture velocity, focal mechanism) are determined for the moderate-size October 27, 2004 (MW = 5.8) Vrancea (Romania) intermediate-depth earthquake by inversion of teleseismic waveforms. The Vrancea area, located in the South-Eastern part of the Carpathian Arc, is affected by the occurrence of frequent and strong intermediate-depth earthquakes. The most recent moderate shock occurred on October 27, 2004 (MW = 5.8). In this paper we have analysed the earthquake using global data from far away stations. We used 7 P-waves and 6 S-waves readings from IRIS-GEOSCOPE networks. These stations are situated far away at epicentral distances ranging between 30◦ and 90◦. For the waveforms inversion we applied Neighbourhood Algorithm (Sambridge 1999a, 1999b). Rupture parameters determination was based on Slip Patch Method (Vall´ee and Bouchon 2004) and the used program was Kimberklite (CEA/DASE, Franch). The application of the inversion technique to teleseismic let to a fault plane solution and source parameters close to those obtained by CMT solution from global data and the solution retrieved from local data.
