Dear all,

Abstract submission for the AGU Fall Meeting, 15-19 December 2014 in San
Francisco, CA is now open.  We invite contributions to the following:

*Shallow properties of fault zones *(#2792)

In the top few kilometers of active fault zones, low confining stresses and
temperatures create a unique set of conditions that affect the evolution
and long-term properties of faults, as well as dynamic rupture and seismic
wave propagation. Properties such as fault friction, fluid flow and
material damage provide insight into the mechanics and evolution of the
fault zone, while seismic velocities and fault geometry allow us to better
understand the hazard posed by faults, including strong ground motion and
directivity. Geologic, seismic, and geodetic observations -- along with
laboratory studies -- provide constraints on these properties and their
time evolution, while modeling efforts allow us to better understand
long-term properties of fault zones, with implications for earthquake
hazard. We encourage contributions that inform or constrain shallow
properties of fault zones, including fault geometry, rheology, frictional
stability/weakening, fluid flow, damage, seismicity patterns, and rupture
