[′net ′slip]
(geology)
On a fault, the distance between two formerly adjacent points on either side of the fault; defines direction and relative amount of displacement. Also known as total slip.

Considering the four different RI discussed above, the complete set of possible net slip rate values would range from 0.
These values provide a range of possible net slip rate from 0.
The paper describes the full course of the fault, defining the net slip across it, and shows its relationship to other major tectonic features of central California, helping to clarify the evolution of the San Andreas system.
5a results from obliqueness between the trench and the mean fault strike) and the measured pitch of the dominant fault striation is 75[degrees] S, a net slip of 6.
Considering an average measured dip of 68[degrees] and pure normal displacement, that implies a net slip of 215-235 m and an average slip rate of about 0.
This would result in an average net slip rate of 0.
It includes the following fields: Geomorphic evidence, age of the youngest deposits affected by the fault, vertical (VSR), horizontal (HSR) and net slip rate (NSR), maximum slip per event, number of seismic events, and whether there is evidence of aseismic creep.
When the net slip rate field is filled, source is addressed very differently: 14%, 5% and 76%, respectively.
