*Mendenhall Opportunity #9:  Investigating Processes Underlying Volcanic
and Tectonic Earthquake
Swarms<http://geology.usgs.gov/postdoc/2013/opps/opp9.html>
*

Earthquake swarms, which consist of a series of events lacking a clear
mainshock, can have event rates orders of magnitude higher than the
background.  Swarms are common, yet they are not well understood.  They
likely reflect a variety of underlying processes, both volcanic and
tectonic, that have potentially important societal consequences including
heightened hazard. As swarms can cause a great deal of public anxiety in
populated areas, an important research goal is to develop capabilities to
identify characteristics of earthquake swarms that can illuminate the
processes driving this activity.
