The model that would eventually become Virtual California started as a limited simulation model developed by Rundle (1988) for the distributed seismicity on the San Andreas and adjacent faults in southern California. This model included stress accumulation and release as well as stress interactions between faults. An updated version of this model was developed (Rundle et al. 2001, 2002, 2004), including the major strike‐slip faults in California, and was called Virtual California. Details of the model were given in Rundle et al. (2006a,b). Yakovlev et al. (2006) utilized Virtual California simulations...
