Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 0 LD geomorphic records (several authors)
Max Depth (km) 14 EJ inferred from aftershock spatial distribution (Papanastassiou, 2001)
Strike (deg) 220 - 240 LD various geological/morphotectonic maps
Dip (deg) 45 - 75 LD based on aftershock spatial distribution (Papanastassiou, 2001)
Rake (deg) 250 - 280 LD based on kinematic indicators (Caputo R., unpublished data)
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.1 - 0.4 AR calculated from geodetic strain rate fields (various authors)
Max Magnitude (Mw) 6.6 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
