One of the most important subduction zones in the world is located in the Mexican Pacific Coast, where the Cocos plate inserts beneath the North American plate. One part of it is located in the Mexican Pacific Coast, where the Cocos plate inserts beneath the North American plate with different dip angles, showing important seismicity. Under the central Mexican area, such a dip angle becomes practically horizontal and such an area is known as flat slab. An earthquake of magnitude M7.1 occurred… Expand

Case Study of Earthquake Probability Using Natural Time and Nowcasting of the Sarpol-e Zahab Region in Kermanshah, Iran
The observed statistical seismic quantity is critical to understanding the nature of earthquakes and potential hazards in earthquake-prone areas. We have studied the nowcasting concept, whichExpand

Spatiotemporal variations of seismicity before major earthquakes in the Japanese area and their relation with the epicentral locations
TLDR
It is found that some small areas show β minimum almost simultaneously with the large area and such small areas clustered within a few hundred kilometers from the actual epicenter of the related main shocks, suggesting that the present approach may help estimation of the epicentral location of forthcoming major earthquakes.

Natural time analysis: On the deadly Mexico M8.2 earthquake on 7 September 2017
Abstract A widespread opinion appears to prevail that the two recent deadly Mexico earthquakes, i.e., M8.2 on 7 September 2017 and M7.1 on 19 September 2017, in Chiapas and Morelos regions,Expand
Shape of the subducted Rivera and Cocos plates in southern Mexico: Seismic and tectonic implications
The geometry of the subducted Rivera and Cocos plates beneath the North American plate in southern Mexico was determined based on the accurately located hypocenters of local and teleseismicExpand
Non-extensive and natural time analysis of seismicity before the Mw6.4, October 12, 2013 earthquake in the South West segment of the Hellenic Arc
Earthquakes exhibit complex correlations in space, time, and magnitude. As such, they present a unique example for a time series exhibiting complexity. To uncover hidden dynamic features ofExpand
Identifying the Occurrence Time of the Deadly Mexico M8.2 Earthquake on 7 September 2017
TLDR
Based on natural time analysis, which enables the introduction of an order parameter for seismicity, a procedure through which the identification of the occurrence time of the M8.2 earthquake that occurred on 7 September 2017 in Mexico in Chiapas region is discussed. Expand
Horizontal subduction and truncation of the Cocos Plate beneath central Mexico
[1] Based on analysis of data from a trans-Mexico temporary broadband seismic network centered on Mexico City, we report that the subducting Cocos Plate beneath central Mexico is horizontal, andExpand
Minimum of the order parameter fluctuations of seismicity before major earthquakes in Japan
TLDR
It is found that the fluctuations of the order parameter of seismicity exhibit distinct minima a few months before all of the shallow earthquakes of magnitude 7.6 or larger that occurred during this 27-y period in the Japanese area. Expand
Tomography and thermal state of the Cocos plate subduction beneath Mexico City
[1] The geometry and thermal state of the subducting Cocos plate beneath Mexico City has been enigmatic because of the absence of a deep Wadati-Benioff zone. We present a tomographic image of theExpand
Tectonics of the Caribbean and Middle America Regions from Focal Mechanisms and Seismicity
Seismic data strongly support recent theories of tectonics in which large plates of lithosphere move coherently with respect to one another as nearly rigid bodies, spreading apart at ocean ridges,Expand
Investigation of the temporal correlations between earthquake magnitudes before the Mexico M8.2 earthquake on 7 September 2017
Abstract By employing Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA), which has been established as a standard method to investigate long range correlations in nonstationary time series, we study the temporalExpand
