Fig. 11

Periodic slip rate change observed along the San Andreas fault (after Turner et al. (2015)). The slip rate is denoted by color and in percent difference from the average long-term rate. Red and blue indicate slip rates higher or lower than the long-term average. White indicates higher uncertainty associated with fewer repeating earthquake sequences or with rapidly changing rates. White bars at the lower right show the spatial and temporal smoothing windows used. Thick and thin horizontal bars show the rupture extent and timing of The Loma Prieta (LP, in green) and Parkfield (PF, in red) earthquakes. Circles show earthquakes along the fault (M 3.5) that are scaled along with their magnitude (see scale at top left). The yellow highlighted trace shows the slip rate history (given in absolute terms) in the section from 85 to 95 km NW of PF
