Science of slow earthquakes: Toward unified understandings of whole earthquake process
Convener: Kazushige Obara, Kenneth C. Creager, Heidi Houston, Takanori Matsuzawa
Session Description:
Recognition of slow earthquake phenomena originated in Cascadia and Japan. Since the discovery of slow earthquakes, their study has continued to advance rapidly. Discussion in this joint session with Seismological Society of Japan (SSJ) is proposed to advance understanding of the phenomena not only in these two zones, but in many subduction zones around the Pacific Ocean, as well as other tectonic settings. The proximity of slow slip phenomena in subduction zones to great megathrust earthquakes highlights the importance of this topic for seismic hazard. The goal of the session is to bring together research on slow earthquake phenomena that uses a variety of tools from seismology, geodesy, numerical modeling and laboratory studies, for various tectonic settings and spatial and temporal scales. This session is jointly organized by the Seismological Society of Japan and SSA.
