Stress Model Formats:
We will provide model contributors with a set of points in the
specified input format (the point spacing should over-sample all the
models, so that there isn't any aliasing of undersampled models), and
model contributors will submit the modeled stress at those points in
the specified output format. The modeled stress should represent
present-day stress, as close as possible.
Input: text file with lines:
LON LAT DEP
- LON/LAT in degrees, WGS84 (California has negative LON)
- DEP in km relative to mean sea level (positive: below sea-level; negative: above sea-level)
Output:
- text file with two lines per grid point (data line and uncertainty
line, 1-sigma uncertainty sits below value). if a grid point is outside
the spatial range of the model, it can be omitted from the output file
- the data lines should be preceded by one or more header lines,
begining with #, that include meta-data mentioning the author,
contact information, date of creating, describing briefly how the
model was created, whether the model is of stress or stressing rate,
the spatial resolution of the model, time-period the model represents,
and any other relevant information
- any undefined values set to NaN, everything can be set to NaN if point is
outside range of model
- modelers providing a full stress tensor do not need to also provide
SHmax etc, and can set this to NaN
- all stress magnitudes in MPa, stressing rate magnitudes in MPa/yr
- tension is taken positive (physics convention)

0: stress ratio not meaningful, tensor represents orientations only
DEV:
1: deviatoric stress (s1-s3)/2 in tensor is meaningful, values in MPa, 1-sigma uncertainty given below
0: deviatoric stress not meaningful
ISO:
1: isostatic stress (s1+s2+s3)/3 in tensor is meaningful, values in MPa, 1-sigma uncertainty given below
0: isostatic stress not meaningful
DOT:
1: stress orientation uncertainty defined by normalized tensor dot product (dot-1sig gives 1-sigma value)
0: do not use tensor dot product for uncertainty
ANG:
1: stress orientation uncertainty defined by angular uncertainty of principal axes (s1-1sig etc give 1-sigma values)
0: do not use angular uncertainty
