Reminder! Manuscripts for the JGR Special Section on ?The Phenomenology, 
Underlying Processes, and Hazard Implications of Slow Slip, Tremor and 
Earthquakes? may be submitted July 1 to September 1, 2008.  If you are 
considering a submission, please send a tentative title and author list to 
Joan Gomberg at gomberg at usgs.gov as soon as possible.  When you are ready 
to submit, please use the online GEMS system (see 
http://www.agu.org/pubs/submit_to_AGU.html) and use the link indicating 
your manuscript is being submitted for this Special Section.  Questions 
may be addressed to Joan Gomberg, Wendy McCausland (wmccausland at usgs.gov) 
or Hitoshi Hirose (hirose at bosai.go.jp)

This Special Section focuses on one of the most exciting new discoveries 
in the Earth sciences - the phenomena of slow slip and tremor. Slow slip 
refers to fault motion that occurs over many seconds to months without 
radiating seismic waves, measurable using geodetic methods.  Tremor is 
seismic wave energy that radiates at low amplitudes for long durations, 
detectable on sensors tuned to record high frequencies. Slow slip and 
tremor represent modes of fault motion that differ from that in 
earthquakes. This special section will document these new scientific 
mysteries, potential explanations, and their implications for earthquake 
hazards.
