Slow slip, Tectonic Tremor, and the Brittle-to-Ductile Transition Zone: What mechanisms control the diversity of slow and fast earthquakes?





Session ID#: 27253

Session Description:
The transition from brittle stick-slip faulting to stable sliding is gradual and the slow transients that occur within this region play a key role alongside earthquakes in accommodating tectonic motion along plate boundaries. The temporal variation of slow-slip phenomena, in some cases, may be related to the megathrust earthquake cycle. Fundamental questions about the physics of faulting within this transitional region remain: can this region also host unstable rupture during a major earthquake? What physical mechanisms and/or rheological conditions allow for the wide variety of observed behavior of faulting and transient slip?  We seek abstracts that approach this topic from a variety of perspectives, whether they be model- or data-driven, geological or statistical, seismological or geodetical, or large- or laboratory-scale. We are especially interested in abstracts concerning the rheological properties of the brittle-to-ductile transition zone that will help improve our current understanding of slow earthquake dynamics.
