Mignan et al. (2015) estimated the maximum rupture lengths for strike-slip faults by applying a multisegment rupture method and calculating new Mmax values using selected strike-slip scaling relations. In an initial step, they compared the European fault length–Mmax data with five candidate relations, and based on this comparison, dismissed two.

In this article, the bilinear scaling relation of Leonard (2010, 2014) was only partially applied and therefore gave anomalously high estimates of magnitudes for fault lengths greater than 45 km. As such it was excluded from future consideration. The partial application likely occurred because the M...
