Holocene slip rate of the Wasatch fault zone, Utah, from geodetic data: Earthquake cycle effects

Malservisi, R., T.H. Dixon, P.C. La Femina, and K.P. Furlong (2003), Holocene slip rate of the Wasatch fault zone, Utah, from geodetic data: Earthquake cycle effects, Geophys. Res. Lett., 30(13), doi:10.1029/2003GL017408.

Abstract
GPS data define a broad zone of present day deformation in the eastern Basin and Range province, western US. Using finite element models with elastic upper crust over viscoelastic lower crust/upper mantle and incorporating earthquake cycle effects, we show that these data are consistent with a model whereby most contemporary fault slip is focused on the Wasatch fault zone. Modeled rates of horizontal extension are 3.0-4.5 mm/yr, in agreement with Holocene geologic data. The models are non-unique, in part because much of the Wasatch fault is in the late stages of the earthquake cycle, when surface velocity gradients across the fault are low.
