Version of Record online: 26 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL047849

Key Points

  • Elastic material contrasts are common and affect rupture path selection
  • Branches are more likely to rupture if in a more compliant vs. stiffer material
  • Interactions between rupture on the two faults plays a pivotal role
