Rapid Finite Fault Inversion for Megathrust Earthquakes

Benavente Bravo, Roberto Fabian


The largest earthquakes take place at subduction zones, and their devastating impact in populated regions is often exacerbated by their ability to excite powerful tsunamis. Today, we understand that large subduction earthquakes, known as megathrust events, are caused by the sudden release of elastic strain energy stored at the plate boundaries where a localized, previously locked, section of the megathrust ruptures. The rupture process can propagate over...[Show more]
