Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 2 EJ Inferred from regional tectonic and geologic considerations.
Max Depth (km) 12 EJ Inferred from regional tectonic and seismological considerations.
Strike (deg) 270 - 330 LD Based on map of active faults (Ivanic et al., 2006).

Rake (deg) 70 - 100 EJ Infered from structural and geodynamic considerations.
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.05 - 0.25 EJ Inferred from geodynamic data and geological considerations.
Max Magnitude (Mw) 6 EJ Inferred from fault characteristics, earthquake data and regional geodynamics.
Q-keys: LD = Literature Data; OD = Original Data; ER = Empirical Relationship; AR = Analytical Relationship; EJ = Expert Judgement
