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 ($\eta_a$) 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)
