1985). 70 km southwest of the San Andreas fault; Gulf Coast average trend presented for reference. Fluid pressure and fault stability within seismogenic crust The seismogenic regime occupies the upper part of deforming continental crust and appears to represent the zone of unstable frictional sliding. Background microearthquake activity extends to depths of 10-15 km in regions of moderate to high heat flow (60-100 mW m 2), but deepens significantly in regions of rapid thrust convergence (> 10 mm a -1) such as the thrust-front of the Himalaya.
