Elastodynamic analysis for slow tectonic loading with spontaneous rupture episodes on faults with rate‐ and state‐dependent friction
We present an efficient and rigorous numerical procedure for calculating the elastodynamic response of a fault subjected to slow tectonic loading processes of long duration within which there are
Earthquake clusters in southern California I: Identification and stability
We use recent results on statistical analysis of seismicity to present a robust method for comprehensive detection and analysis of earthquake clusters. The method is based on nearest‐neighbor
Collective behavior of earthquakes and faults: Continuum‐discrete transitions, progressive evolutionary changes, and different dynamic regimes
Crustal deformation patterns are affected by multiscale granulation and healing processes associated with phase transitions between continuum and discrete states of rocks. The ongoing
Wrinkle-like slip pulse on a fault between different
Pulses of slip velocity can propagate on a planar interface governed by a constant coefficient of friction, where the interface separates different elastic materials. Such pulses have been found in
Potency-magnitude scaling relations for southern California earthquakes with 1.0
Linear and quadratic scaling relations between potency P 0 and local magnitude M L for southern California earthquakes are derived using observed data of small events (1.0 < M L < 3.5) recorded in
Characterization of Fault Zones
There are currently three major competing views on the essential geometrical, mechanical, and mathematical nature of faults. The standard view is that faults are (possibly segmented and
Temporal Changes of Shallow Seismic Velocity Around the Karadere-Düzce Branch of the North Anatolian Fault and Strong Ground Motion
We analyze temporal variations of seismic velocity along the Karadere-Düzce branch of the north Anatolian fault using seismograms generated by repeating earthquake clusters in the aftershock zones of
Properties of seismic fault zone waves and their utility for imaging low-velocity structures
A two-dimensional solution for the scalar wave equation in a model of two vertical layers between two quarter spaces is used to study properties of seismic waves in a laterally heterogeneous
Systematic analysis of crustal anisotropy along the Karadere—Düzce branch of the North Anatolian fault
S U M M A R Y We perform a systematic analysis of crustal anisotropy along and around the Karadere–Duzce branch of the North Anatolian fault (NAF), which ruptured during the 1999 Mw 7.4 Izmit and Mw
