...Neng Xiong; Fenglin Niu; Rongjiang Wang Abstract We computed the stress‐change tensor around the 2015 M w 7.8 Gorkha earthquake with two different rupture models: a simple uniformly dipping model and a complex ramp‐flat‐ramp‐flat fault‐slip model. In general, the Coulomb failure stress changes ( Δ...

... to resolve smaller‐scale slip features. Our synthetic tests show that this new multiscale SA strategy works better at converging to the global minimum solution than the original SA approach. We also apply this new strategy to the 2015 Gorkha, Nepal, earthquake. The results show that our recovered slip...
