Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 0 LD geomorphic records (Tranos & Mountrakis, 2004)
Max Depth (km) 16 EJ inferred from seismogenic layer thickness of nearby areas
Strike (deg) 80 - 140 LD geological/morphotectonic maps (Tranos & Mountrakis, 2004)
Dip (deg) 50 - 80 EJ inferred from field measurements and geological considerations
Rake (deg) 260 - 280 LD field observations (Tranos & Mountrakis, 2004)
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.05 - 0.1 LD displacement of dated Quaternary sediments (Tranos & Mountrakis, 2004)
Max Magnitude (Mw) 6.8 ER calculated from the empirical relationships of Wells and Coppersmith (1994)
Q-keys: LD = Literature Data; OD = Original Data; ER = Empirical Relationship; AR = Analytical Relationship; EJ = Expert Judgement
