  • Abstract The 11 April 2012 M  8.6 Indian Ocean earthquake was an unusually large intraoceanic strike‐slip event. For several days, the global M ≥4.5 and M ≥6.5 seismicity rate at remote distances (i.e., thousands of kilometers from the mainshock) was elevated. The strike‐slip mainshock appears through its Love waves to have triggered a global burst of strike‐slip aftershocks over several days. But the M ≥6.5 rate subsequently dropped to zero for the succeeding 95 days, although the M ≤6.0… CONTINUE READING
