Fault network geometry prescribed for dynamic earthquake rupture modeling. Colors on fault surfaces indicate dipping angle (dip), highlighting the flattening with depth of the Jordan Thrust, Kekerengu, and Needles faults. All segments dip westwards, except for the Humps Fault Zone. The Hope, Culverden, and Leonard Mound faults, dipping, respectively, 70° toward NorthWest, 70° toward South, and 50° toward SouthEast, are displayed in yellow. These faults do not rupture in our dynamic rupture model. Also shown are the high-resolution topography and bathymetry58, and S-wave speeds (Vs) on four cross-sections of the 3D subsurface structure59 incorporated in the model
