Parametric information
Parameter Qual. Evidence
Min Depth (km) 14 LD Based on geological data from Ridente et al. (2008).
Max Depth (km) 25 EJ Inferred from lower depth of instrumental earthquakes in the region.
Strike (deg) 90 - 100 LD Based on geological data from Ridente et al. (2008).
Dip (deg) 70 - 90 EJ Inferred from regional geological data.
Rake (deg) 160 - 190 EJ Inferred from regional geological and seismological data.
Slip Rate (mm/y) 0.1 - 0.5 EJ Unknown, values assumed from geodynamic constraints.
Max Magnitude (Mw) 5.5 EJ Assumed from regional seismological data.
Q-keys: LD = Literature Data; OD = Original Data; ER = Empirical Relationship; AR = Analytical Relationship; EJ = Expert Judgement
