LFE amplitude binning to derive slow transients

We selected the LFE amplitude bins to contain at least 30 data points per bin while minimizing overlap. The four bins chosen for Fig. 2, from lowest to highest moment rates, contained 52, 41, 47, and 35 days of data. Following the method of Frank (13), the GPS displacements in each bin were cumulatively summed, and the average displacement per day was estimated as the slope of the best-fit linear trend.

To investigate the sensitivity of the results to binning, we performed the same analysis as described in the main text with three rather than four amplitude bins. We used the same criteria described above to select three amplitude bins, except that we required a minimum of 40 data points in each bin. We observed a power-law relationship between seismic and geodetic moment rates in fig. S3 with scaling coefficients of α = 1013.89 ± 0.26 and β = 3.15 ± 0.40. This trend is similar to the relationship constrained in Fig. 2.
