Some hints (flag, text, reference) on whether an event reportedly produced surface rupture.


Discussion area: please fill in your comments below (between the horizontal lines) and tag with your user name and the date of your comment.
Example: FabianEuchner, 2014-10-21

If this flag is used, it is recommended to provide either text or literature evidence.


Discussion area: please fill in your comments below (between the horizontal lines) and tag with your user name and the date of your comment.
Example: FabianEuchner, 2014-10-21

Note that although maybe given in text or literature, there is no parametric representation of uncertainty.
PhilippKästli, 2015-06-30


SurfaceRupture.evidence (type string)

What evidence supports the presence of surface rupture? (This field allows for amplification-specific classification, however no classification is currently enforced.)

Rupture [element]

Description of some boundary parameters of the the actually experienced slip process. This is kept separate from the concept of 'fault' (as a geological feature supposed (or: observed) to be capable to host rupture processes.


Discussion area: please fill in your comments below (between the horizontal lines) and tag with your user name and the date of your comment.
Example: FabianEuchner, 2014-10-21

While the peak motion part of the schema is actively used, and thus got relevant peer review, the rupture description has been specified in the framework of the NERA project, however, afaik, it is not actively used. I am not sure whether it is adequate to host a detailed rupture description (referring to the EQ source process, corresponding models, in-situ observation and complex analysis results) in the same schema as the non-time-dynamic instrumental peak motion observations. Time line and audience could be too different
