Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 3 OD Based on geological data from various authors.
Max Depth (km) 11 LD Based on data of instrumental seismicity.
Strike (deg) 20 - 40 EJ Inferred from geological and geomorphological observations.
Dip (deg) 20 - 40 EJ Inferred from geological observations.
