6 [1] The absolute value of stress on a fault during slip is a critical unknown quantity in 7 earthquake physics. One of the reasons for the uncertainty is a lack of geological 8 constraints in real faults. Here we calculate the slip rate and stress on an ancient fault 9 in a new way based on rocks preserved in an unusual exposure. The study area consists of 10 a fault core on Kodiak Island that has a series of asymmetrical intrusions of ultrafine11 grained fault rock into the surrounding… CONTINUE READING
