New Empirical Relationships among Magnitude, Rupture Length, Rupture Width, Rupture Area, and Surface Displacement
Source parameters for historical earthquakes worldwide are compiled to develop a series of empirical relationships among moment magnitude (M), surface rupture length, subsurface rupture length, downdip rupture width, rupture area, and maximum and average displacement per event. The resulting data base is a significant update of previous compilations and includes the additional source parameters of seismic moment, moment magnitude, subsurface rupture length, downdip rupture width, and average surface displacement.

The Forest Service will host its remaining two public meetings in Queen Valley on October 8 and in Tempe on October 10.
Video & Materials
A video presentation – the same information introduced at each public meeting – as well as meeting materials (posters and newsletter) are available for public review.
