STATIC STRESS CHANGES AND THE TRIGGERING OF EARTHQUAKES
Abstract To understand whether the 1992 M = 7.4 Landers earthquake changed the proximity to failure on the San Andreas fault system, we examine the general problem of how one earthquake might triggerExpand

Stress triggering in thrust and subduction earthquakes and stress interaction between the southern San Andreas and nearby thrust and strike-slip faults
[1] We argue that key features of thrust earthquake triggering, inhibition, and clustering can be explained by Coulomb stress changes, which we illustrate by a suite of representative models and byExpand

Analytical Characterization of the Unique Properties of Planetary Gear Free Vibration
This work develops an analytical model of planetary gears and uses it to investigate their natural frequencies and vibration modes. The model admits three planar degrees of freedom for each of theExpand

Role of melt supply in oceanic detachment faulting and formation of megamullions
Normal faults are ubiquitous on mid-ocean ridges and are expected to develop increasing offset with reduced spreading rate as the proportion of tectonic extension increases. Numerous long-livedExpand

Far field tsunami simulations of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake: Implications for tsunami hazard to the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean
article i nfo The great Lisbon earthquake of November 1st,1755 with an estimated moment magnitude of 8.5-9.0 was the most destructive earthquake in European history. The associated tsunami run-up wasExpand

Crustal thickness of V‐shaped ridges south of the Azores: Interaction of the Mid‐Atlantic Ridge (36°–39°N) and the Azores hot spot
V-shaped ridges propagating along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge axis south of the Azores and Iceland hot spots indicate that ridge-hot spot interactions produce temporal and spatial variations in meltExpand

Evidence from gravity anomalies for interactions of the Marion and Bouvet hotspots with the Southwest Indian Ridge: effects of transform offsets
Abstract The ultra-slow spreading Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR) presents a unique environment to study the interactions between hotspots and ridges with highly segmented geometry. Using recentlyExpand

Mesh Stiffness Variation Instabilities in Two-Stage Gear Systems
Mesh stiffness variation, the change in stiffness of meshing teeth as the number of teeth in contact changes, causes parametric instabilities and severe vibration in gear systems. The operatingExpand

Time variation in igneous volume flux of the Hawaii‐Emperor hot spot seamount chain
[1] Satellite gravity, ship track bathymetry, sediment thickness, and crustal magnetic age data were combined to calculate the residual bathymetry and residual mantle Bouguer gravity anomaly (RMBA)Expand

Coseismic folding, earthquake recurrence, and the 1987 source mechanism at Whittier Narrows, Los Angeles basin, California
Static deformation associated with the October 1, 1987, Whittier Narrows, California, M = 6.0 earthquake was detected by geodetic elevation changes. The earthquake uplifted a 1.5-km-high QuaternaryExpand
