Table 1 Fault parameters estimated from 60-, 80-, and 100-s Rayleigh waves in this study

From: Rupture features of the 2010 Mw 8.8 Chile earthquake extracted from surface waves

Fault parameters Northern segment Southern segment
Rupture length (km) 313 118
Source duration (s) 187 100
Rupture azimuth (°)a 17 171
Rise time (s) 32.3
Rupture velocity (km/s)b 1.67 1.18
Rupture velocity (km/s)c 2.02 1.74
  1. aRupture azimuth is estimated clockwise from the north
  2. bRupture velocity is calculated from the average source duration
  3. cRupture velocity is calculated after deducting the rise time from the average source duration
