Convenient formulas for determining dip-slip fault parameters from geophysical observables

Abstract

Simple equations are presented for estimating slip magnitude, fault dip angle, width of the zone of compression, and other co-seismic parameters from geologic, seismic, and geodetic observations made in subduction zone and continental dip-slip environments. These equations are easy to memorize and use without computational aids.
