We test the critical point concept for earthquakes in terms of the spatial correlation length. A system near a critical point is associated with a diverging correlation length following a power law time-to-failure relation. We estimate the correlation length directly from an earthquake catalog using single-link cluster analysis. Therefore we assume that the distribution of moderate earthquakes reeects the state of the regional stress eld. The parameters of the analysis are determined by an… CONTINUE READING
