Short summary
Aguascalientes valley, located in the central part of México, is affected for a land subsidence process triggered by groundwater withdrawal. The resulted P-wave velocity models show a low-velocity anomaly within the fracture trace with widths from 50 to 100 meters. This anomaly is interpreted as a mechanically disturbed zone due to the activity of the surface fault, this is, due to the presence of fracturing caused to the adjacent material by the differential subsidence.
