Figure 1

a, Southwest Spain seismicity (2000–2010), focal mechanisms (1970–2010), long-term GPS velocity (2006–2011, grey) and coseismic vectors (red). Major mapped faults are labelled. b, Lorca city and Alto Guadalentin Basin. IGN mainshock focal mechanisms (black), pre-shock (light grey) and largest aftershock (dark grey), and relocated seismic sequence13. The black stars are damage locations; the red lines are faults11. The contour lines indicate 2 cm yr−1 InSAR subsidence due to groundwater pumping14. Blue rectangle: fault surface projection. AMF, Alhama de Murcia Fault. c, Groundwater depth evolution from different data sources (see Supplementary Information). d, InSAR (triangles) and line-of-sight (LOS)-projected GPS ground-surface subsidence at LORC station.
