The recent discovery of episodic tremor and slip (ETS) in subduction zones is based on slow slip episodes visible in global positioning system observations correlated with nonvolcanic tremor signals on seismometers. ETS occurs just inboard from a region capable of great megathrust earthquakes; however, whether there is any communication between these two processes remains unknown. In this study we use new single-station methods to compile an ETS catalog for the entire Cascadia subduction zone… Expand

Tectonic tremor and slow slip along the northwestern section of the Mexico subduction zone

Possible control of subduction zone slow-earthquake periodicity by silica enrichment
TLDR
Comprehensive seismic data from subduction zone forearcs exhibiting recurring slow earthquakes is compiled and it is shown that the average ratio of compressional (P)-wave velocity to shear (S-wave velocity) of the overlying forearc crust ranges between 1.6 and 2.0 and is linearly related to the average recurrence time of slow earthquakes.

A wide depth distribution of seismic tremors along the northern Cascadia margin
TLDR
The observed depth range implies that tremors could be associated with the variation of stress field induced by a transient slip along the deeper portion of the Cascadia interface or, alternatively, that episodic slip is more diffuse than originally suggested. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that ETS activity can be used as a real-time indicator of stress loading of the Cascadia megathrust earthquake zone and is called episodic tremor and slip (ETS). Expand

TLDR
New data show that ETS recurs throughout the entire length of the Cascadia subduction zone, thus ruling out any special, local factors as necessary conditions for ETS, and calls attention to the Portevin-Le Chatelier effect (PLC) as a potential analog to the earthquake process. Expand
