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.

The Highs and the Lows of Megathrust Earthquakes
Why does low-frequency energy come from the shallow part of ruptures, and the high frequencies from deep?
Earthquake Rupture Solution is Up in the Air
Perhaps the most complex earthquake rupture ever studied is further constrained by signals from Earth’s ionosphere.
Was the AD 365 Mediterranean Earthquake Normal?
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 Hanging in the Balance
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.
Slow Slip By Any Other Name
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?
