Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 2 EJ Inferred from regional tectonic and geologic considerations and seismic profile
Max Depth (km) 15 EJ Inferred from regional tectonic, geologic and seismological considerations.
Strike (deg) 280 - 330 LD Based on geological and geomorphological data from various authors.
