For more information see:

S13: Lessons Learned From the 2010, Maule Earthquake
Sponsor: Seismology (S)
Co-Sponsor(s): Natural Hazards (NH)

Description: The Mw=8.8, February 27, 2010 Maule earthquake was one of the largest subduction zone earthquakes to occur recently along the Chile trench. A large range of instrumentation was deployed immediately after the earthquake to compliment existing data. We encourage contributions that address interdisciplinary studies of the Maule earthquake, aftershocks, the seismic cycle, fore-arc and arc structure, crustal deformation, and associated phenomena including the tsunami and tremor events. We especially encourage contributions that make use of the instrumentation deployed after the mainshock. Comparison studies with other great subduction zone earthquakes including the 2004 Sumatra earthquake and the 2011 Japan earthquake are welcomed.
