Figure 18: Synthetic seismograms for Hella, Hveragerđi, and Reykjavík calculated for the variable slip model shown in Figure 14. Vx, Vy, and Vzare velociti es in E-W, N-S, and vertical direction, respectively. The large amplitudes at Hveragerđi and Reykjavík are Love-waves. The small bumps in the Vx component at Hella after 12 s are reflections from the southern boundary.
