Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 0 EJ Based on outcrop data (Kümmel, 1935) and geomorphology
Max Depth (km) 9 LD Based on reflection seismic data (Hinsch et al.,2005)
Strike (deg) 350 - 30 LD Based on geomorphological maps (Hinsch et al., 2005; Decker et al., 2005)
Dip (deg) 40 - 60 EJ Based on 2-D seismic profiles (e.g., Hinsch et al., 2005)
Rake (deg) 260 - 280 EJ Inferred from geological and geomorphological data
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.05 - 0.2 EJ Inferred from Quaternary geology and geomorphology
Max Magnitude (Mw) 6.8 ER Based on the maximum rupture area (Wells & Coppersmith, 1994)
Q-keys: LD = Literature Data; OD = Original Data; ER = Empirical Relationship; AR = Analytical Relationship; EJ = Expert Judgement
