Fig. 6

Relationship between the magnitude of the first event and distance to the second earthquake for consecutive earthquakes in the creeping section of the San Andreas fault (after Rubin et al. 1999). Diamonds indicate that the vertical separation between the events exceeds the horizontal separation; crosses indicate the reverse. The diagonal line is the estimate of earthquake radius derived from the moment-magnitude relation of Abercrombie (1996), assuming a stress drop of 10 MPa
