Figure 2.1:
Model results. The RMS misfit between the calculated and observed horizontal displacements as a function of elastic
plate thickness (Hp) and asthenosphere viscosity () for the two layer Earth model as a function of time since the earthquake. The star marks the best-fit displacement model with the lowest RMS error value. The best-fit
horizontal displacements for each of the best-fit models is plotted adjacent to its misfit plot.
Vectors in black denote the observed displacement tipped with 95% confidence ellipses
and yellow arrows are the calculated model displacements. (Figure from Section 29)
