Reply to “ Comment on ‘ Models of Stochastic , Spatially Varying Stress in the Crust Compatible with Focal-Mechanism Data , and How Stress Inversions Can Be Biased toward the Stress Rate ’ by Deborah


In her comment (Hardebeck, 2015) on our stress heterogeneity article (Smith and Heaton, 2011), Hardebeck suggests a different focal-mechanism error distribution than what we used in our 2011 article and suggests that this new error distribution will reduce our estimates of stress heterogeneity. In response to this, we have rerun our calculations three ways… (More)
