What causes slow earthquakes in subduction zones? New insights from numerical models suggest that a mixture of strong and weak rocks might be the cause.
Why does low-frequency energy come from the shallow part of ruptures, and the high frequencies from deep?
Perhaps the most complex earthquake rupture ever studied is further constrained by signals from Earth’s ionosphere.
The great AD 365 earthquake at Crete has implied a locked Hellenic subduction zone that can produce more earthquakes to threaten Mediterranean coastlines. But what if wasn’t a subduction zone event?
Earthquake hazard calculations for California’s coast are refined with a view of precariously balanced rocks that would have fallen if the largest predicted shaking happened in the past 20,000 years.
Earth’s faults slip most catastrophically as earthquakes. The rise of geodesy reveals an array of slower slip events, meaning faults are nearly always active. Are these behaviors really so different?
Featuring high-impact papers and a streamlined process, AGU’s new journal is ready to launch.
