[1] Slow earthquakes, characterized by slow slip and associated seismic radiation called non-volcanic tremor, have been observed in major subduction zones worldwide. They constitute an important mode of stress release for the fault’s transition zone, which lies directly downdip of the locked segment, the nucleation zone of large damaging earthquakes. However, the depth of tremor in Cascadia, and the factors governing tremor generation and rupture propagation during slow quakes remain enigmatic… CONTINUE READING
