The frictional resistance on a fault during slip controls earthquake dynamics. Friction dissipates heat during an earthquake; therefore, the fault temperature after an earthquake provides insight into the level of friction. The Japan Trench Fast Drilling Project (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 343 and 343T) installed a borehole temperature(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o The Carrizo segment of the San Andreas Fault separates rocks of the Salinian Block southwest of the fault characterized by high heat flow (~75–95 mW/m 2) and shallow seismicity (b~10 km depth), from rocks of the Franciscan Complex and Great Valley Group northeast of the fault associated with low heat flow (50–60 mW/m 2) and deeper(More)
iv Acknowledgements I thank my parents for their steadfast love and for always encouraging me to pursue my dream of becoming a geoscientist. If I am successful in life, it will be due entirely to their guidance and support. I thank my older sister, Emmy, for being my best friend and for always being a phone call away to talk about my romantic interests, our(More)
