## Simulation Results - 22 May 2016

The results below show comparisons between CESMD observed data and LaHabra simulation results from AWP and RWG. Results are shown for 25 stations in the small simulation region. The AWP and Observed data for all events are the same. Three sets of RWG data are plotted. The three RWG results differ by the source description used in the simulation.

## Simulation Results - 11 May 2016

In these plots, Red are data, blue are synthetics. This corresponds to comparisons of 0–0.25 Hz synthetics with data from BH channels downloaded from SCEDC site. The synthetics correspond to the last run Hercules using the large domain. That run was only for 60 s of simulation, so several stations appear cut and in some this introduces artifacts in the signals because of filtering abruptly cut traces. This will be repair in next release.

## Simulation Results - 21 March 2016

Same as 3 March but using corrected AWP data. Updated results using the small domain region. There are two sets of AWP results, one using RWG's rules for clamping Vp/Vs and another one using Bill's rules, which can be described by conditions where Vp/Vs is limited between 1.45 and 3. VpMin is clamped at 1500 m/s and VsMin is clamped at 500 m/s. RWG's rules, on the other hand can be described with conditions that limits Vp/VsMin to 1.45 and VsMin to 500 m/s. Hercules data was calculated with the following simulation parameters: Max Frequency: 4 Hz, Minimum Vs: 500 m/s, Minimum Vp:1500 m/s, Q = 100 Vs, Domain: 28*28*14 km. RWG data was calculated with the small model region. These use Vsmin = 500 m/s, Vpmin = 1500 m/s.

First set of data includes RWG, Hercules, and AWP-RWG:

## Simulation Results - February 22 - Using small domain

The following results correspond to runs done with Hercules comparing previous results obtained with the large simulation domain against new results obtained with the smaller simulation domain. The former are shown in red, whereas the latter are shown for two conditions in blue and green. The results shown in blue are equivalent to those in red with the only difference that the red results were obtained with the original large 180 km x 135 km domain, but the blue were obtained with the smaller 28 km x 28 km domain. In both these cases the minimum Vs is equal to 500 m/s but there is no cap on the minimum Vp. Then the results shown in green correspond to a run done with the smaller domain but now applying a constrain to a minimum Vp equal to 1500 m/s.

## Simulation Results - 7 December 2015

Same data from 20 November 2015. Here are the steps used to process the simulated time series:

- Read all seismograms for a given station, find out largest dt, it becomes new_dt
- Filter at 10Hz back and forward, 4 poles, using filtfilt
- Interpolate using 1D linear to new_dt (in this case, AWP's 0.025 dt)
- Trim longest seismograms to match the shortest one
- Taper at the last 2 seconds: hanning with 161 points, then take 81 last values and apply this to last 81 points of each time series
- Pad last 5 seconds with zeroes
- Filter at 4Hz 4 poles back and forward with filtfilt
- Plot time series and FFT using 1.25 filter frequency
- Repeat last 2 steps with filter frequency set to 0.5, 1, 2, and 3 Hz
