  1. 2022 Theoretical insights on the rupture arrest of large earthquakes

    24 May 2022 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Jean Paul Ampuero

    What determines the size of an earthquake? How can we quantify the control of geometric and material heterogeneities on rupture segmentation? I will present recent progress in our theoretical understanding of earthquake rupture arrest, especially for the largest earthquakes. Recent advances in...

  2. 2022 Mainshock and aftershock sequence simulations in a nonplanar fault network

    19 May 2022 | Webinars | Contributor(s): So Ozawa, Ryosuke Ando

    Aftershocks seem to be located along the trace of the mainshock fault; however, due to the location error, we do not know their exact location relative to the mainshock fault. Here, we hypothesize that most aftershocks occur on small subsidiary faults instead of the mainshock fault, and they...
