While UCERF3 used spatially varying seismogenic depths, on the basis of the 95% contour of background seismicity, we chose to use a uniform seismogenic depth on all the faults in the simulator. This was done for a number of reasons. First, the degree to which dynamic ruptures can rupture coseismically below the seismogenic depth is an open question (22, 23). Second, the step changes in seismogenic depth in UCERF3 are likely oversimplified and, yet, may affect the behavior by creating discontinuities. Looking to build the simplest model first, we thus chose a uniform depth. Examining sensitivity to this depth is an example of the types of epistemic uncertainties we can explore in this framework.
