Error estimation in seismic-geodetic moment rate scaling

The geodetic moment rate errors in Fig. 2 for the geodetically observed slow slip events reflect the observational surface displacement errors. These errors reflect the uncertainty of the estimated static displacement offsets that control the inversion for the distribution of slow slip on the interface. The displacement error for the 2006 M7.5 slow slip event represents ~10% of the estimated moment (7). The average displacement error for the seven M6.4 slow slip events represents ~25% of the estimated moment (8). The uncertainties of the amplitude-derived slow transients were determined with a jackknife analysis. We performed a 10% jackknife of the LFEs in each amplitude bin, determined the average surface displacement per day following the method of Frank (13), and estimated the moment as the corresponding fault dislocation (16). We estimated the geodetic moment rate error of each slow transient as the 10th and 90th percentiles of the resulting jackknifed distribution of estimated moments.

The seismic moment rate errors were estimated with a similar jackknife analysis. We performed a 10% jackknife of the LFEs in each slow slip event or slow transient and recomputed the median LFE amplitude. We estimated the error bars as the 10th to 90th percentiles of the resulting jackknifed distribution of median LFE amplitudes.

The errors in the estimated power-law coefficients α and β were determined by performing a one-sample jackknife of the 12 moment rate data points (8 geodetically constrained slow slip events and 4 amplitude-derived slow transients) and then fitting a new power-law relationship to each jackknifed resampling. We estimated the errors of α and β as the standard deviation of the jackknifed distribution of coefficients.
