Present‐day plate motions
A data set comprising 110 spreading rates, 78 transform fault azimuths, and 142 earthquake slip vectors has been inverted to yield a new instantaneous plate motion model, designated Relative Motion 2Expand
Composition and development of the continental tectosphere
Beneath the old continental nuclei are thick root zones which translate coherently during plate motions. These zones are apparently stabilised against convective disruption by the depletion of theExpand
The continental tectosphere
Studies of free oscillations and body wave travel times have established that the one-way vertical S wave travel times through the upper mantle average about 5 s greater for oceans than for stableExpand
OpenSHA: A Developing Community-modeling Environment for Seismic Hazard Analysis
Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) provides the conceptual framework for estimating the likelihood that something of concern related to earthquake shaking will occur over a specified timeExpand
Stochastic Modeling of Seafloor Morphology: Inversion of Sea Beam Data for Second-Order Statistics
At scale lengths less than 100 km or so, statistical descriptions of seafloor morphology can be usefully employed to characterize ridge crest processes, off-ridge tectonics and vulcanism,Expand
Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3 (UCERF3)—The Time‐Independent Model
The 2014 Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP14) present the time‐independent component of the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3 (UCERF3), whichExpand
Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 2 (UCERF 2)
The 2007 Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP, 2007) presents the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 2 (UCERF 2). This model comprises a time-independentExpand
Colorado Plateau magmatism and uplift by warming of heterogeneous lithosphere
TLDR
It is suggested that warming of heterogeneous lithosphere is a powerful mechanism for driving epeirogenic rock uplift of the Colorado Plateau and may be of general importance in plate-interior settings. Expand
CyberShake: A Physics-Based Seismic Hazard Model for Southern California
CyberShake, as part of the Southern California Earthquake Center’s (SCEC) Community Modeling Environment, is developing a methodology that explicitly incorporates deterministic source and waveExpand
