In this study, the source parameters of the 1998 Fandoqa earthquake were investigated. The observed teleseismic bodywaves of mainshock were modeled in order to obtain the source process. The information from field investigations and the result of locally recorded aftershock activity were considered as supplementary data. The source process fitted with a single source model having a strike-slip mechanism very similar to the result of CMT solution. Rupture during this earthquake initiated in the epicentral area and extended in a bilateral manner. The seismic moment from bodywaves was calculated to be M0=7.1 x1025 dyne-cm and its effective stress drop was about 86 bar while its related dislocation was estimated to be 1.46 m.
