[1] Large earthquakes can trigger distant earthquakes in geothermal areas. Some triggered earthquakes happen while the surface waves pass through a site, but others occur hours or even days later. Does this prolonged seismicity require a special mechanism to store the stress from the seismic waves that differs from ordinary aftershock mechanisms? These questions have driven studies of long-range triggering since the phenomenon’s discovery. Here I attempt to answer the questions by examining the… CONTINUE READING
