1
A Kinematic Fault Network Model for Crustal Deformation (including seismicity of optimal locking depth, shallow surface creep and geological constraints) Yuehua Zeng and Zhengkang Shen

2
Elastic dislocation theory Locked near the surface. Slip at constant rate below transition depth Locking Depth

3
For a given slip distribution on all the faults, the ground deformation vector at any point is obtained by taking a spatial convolution of the static point source Green's function with the fault slip function: where is the shear modulus, i is a unit vector normal to the fault, u j is the j-th component of slip on the fault, and G ni is the Green's function calculated from receiver to source. x is a vector describing the receiver location and is a vector describing the corresponding source point where the Green's function is calculated. 1) assuming fault segments slip at certain rates beneath a locking depth 2) locking depths are defined by local seismicity depth distributions 3) slip vector conservation imposed at fault nodes or intersections 4) depth dependent aseismic creeps
