Computer model of subduction zone, colored by stress change

Model shows the temporal (dynamic) Coulomb stress change caused by the passing of the Rayleigh surface seismic waves, from the magnitude-7.3 earthquake, on a tear in the descending slab where the magnitude-7.4 earthquake occurred four hours later. Stress was obtained as in Hill (2008) and Gonzalez-Huizar and Velasco (2011).
