Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 1 OD Based on inference from intensity data of the 1808 earthquakes.
Max Depth (km) 7 OD Based on the maximum depth of the individual seismogenic sources.
Strike (deg) 60 - 80 OD Based on regional geological data.
Dip (deg) 40 - 50 EJ Inferred from regional geological data.
Rake (deg) 130 - 155 EJ Inferred from geological data, constrained by orientation of T axes.
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.1 - 1 EJ Unknown, values assumed from geodynamic constraints.
Max Magnitude (Mw) 5.7 OD Derived from maximum magnitude of associated individual source(s).
Q-keys: LD = Literature Data; OD = Original Data; ER = Empirical Relationship; AR = Analytical Relationship; EJ = Expert Judgement
