Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 0 LD various airgun seismic profiles and detailed bathymetry
Max Depth (km) 15 EJ inferred from seismogenic layer thickness of nearby areas
Strike (deg) 70 - 115 LD various airgun seismic profiles and detailed bathymetry
Dip (deg) 50 - 80 EJ inferred from seismic profiles and geological considerations
Rake (deg) 210 - 245 EJ inferred from seismic profiles and regional stress field pattern
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.8 - 1.4 AR calculated from geodetic strain rate fields (various authors)
Max Magnitude (Mw) 6.9 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
