To resolve this seismological conundrum, a team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside, used computer models to test the two geometries. The researchers represented the subterranean crust as a 3D volume of space, allowing them to visualize any strengths and weaknesses in the region’s faults. During the simulations, the volumes were squeezed at the rate and direction that reflected the way the region itself is being squeezed by the plate tectonics. By inserting actual seismic data into their models, and by comparing their simulations to GPS data, the researchers were led towards the staircase-like structure.
