The cumulative vertical displacement measured in the trench (7.4 m) and the available maximum age for the deformation (72 ka) yielded a minimum vertical slip rate of 0.1 mm/yr.
*The quake had a 2-m (6.5-ft) horizontal slip and 1-m vertical slip (up thrust).
They say a local bend in the fault may explain the vertical slip.
Assuming for the top of the Paramo 2 unit the same age as in the Concud-Celadas area (latest Ruscinian; 3.6 Ma), and assuming that the entire offset is later, the resulting average vertical slip rate would be 0.06-0.07 mm/y.
Garcia-Mayordomo and Martinez-Diaz (2006) estimated vertical slip rates of 0.30, 0.20 and 0.10 mm/yr for the Hurchillo, Benejuzar and Guardamar folds, respectively, using the structure contour map of the Pliocene surface presented in Taboada et al.
Practically all of the vertical slip rate estimations (95%) indicate the source of the data, this being fundamentally "Literature data" (LD) (51%) followed by "Original Data" (OD) (28%) and "Expert Judgment (EJ) (20%).
