Slip weakening as a mechanism for slow earthquakes


Slow slip forms part of the spectrum of fault behaviour between stable creep and destructive earthquakes1,2. Slow slip occurs near the boundaries of large earthquake rupture zones3,4 and may sometimes trigger fast earthquakes2. It is thought to occur in faults comprised of rocks that strengthen under fast slip rates, preventing rupture as a normal… (More)
