Project Abstract
We have modified the UCSB BBP method to account for kinematic ruptures on multiple faults. The modifications are based on dynamic rupture simulations. With the modified method, we have simulated the 1992 Landers earthquake as comprised of three fault segments: a) the Johnson Valley Fault, b) Homestead Fault and c) Camp Rock Fault.
