Figure:14 Slip distribution along the fault used to calculate peak velocities for 400 m grid spacing. The fault is 50 km long and extends from the surface down to 15 km depth. The southern end of the fault is at 0 km. The colors show the amount of slip from 0 m (dark blue) to 4.5 m (dark red). The magnitude of the slip in each patch is scaled such that the total moment for the earthquake is 5.37 $\times $ 1019 Nm.
