A scaling law for slow earthquakes

  title={A scaling law for slow earthquakes},
  author={Satoshi Ide and Gregory C. Beroza and David R Shelly and Takahiko Uchide},
Recently, a series of unusual earthquake phenomena have been discovered, including deep episodic tremor, low-frequency earthquakes, very-low-frequency earthquakes, slow slip events and silent earthquakes. Each of these has been demonstrated to arise from shear slip, just as do regular earthquakes, but with longer characteristic durations and radiating much less seismic energy. Here we show that these slow events follow a simple, unified scaling relationship that clearly differentiates their… CONTINUE READING
