EARTHQUAKES typically release stored strain energy on timescales of the order of seconds, limited by the velocity of sound in rock. Over the past 20 years, observations1–13 and laboratory experiments14 have indicated that rupture can also occur more slowly, with durations up to hours. Such events may be important in earthquake nucleation15 and in accounting for the excess of plate convergence over seismic slip in subduction zones. The detection of events with larger timescales requires near… CONTINUE READING
