We would like to bring your attention to our AGU2014 session (ID 3538), After the “big one": Integrated studies of seismic and geodetic processes after large earthquakes.
Aftershocks and significant amounts of post-seismic deformation, occur following large earthquakes. The spatial and temporal occurrence of post-mainshock seismicity and deformation may vary with the initial source rupture, fault geometry, and other pre-existing features. The postseismic period of large earthquakes has been extensively detected in the last decade with a variety of instruments and methods (GPS, InSAR, seismicity, etc.). We invite abstracts that characterize post-mainshock deformation, including afterslip, poro-elastic, and viscoelastic relaxation. We solicit studies that synthesize both geodetic and seismological results, including modeling efforts that attempt to reconcile both. We encourage studies that thoroughly examine the spatial relation between geodetically-detected afterslip and aftershock distribution, aftershock activity and future seismic hazard, post-mainshock tremor and slow slip events, and studies that delineate the timing of when seismicity and geodetic locking both approach pre-mainshock rates. Studying geodetic deformation and its relationship to seismicity will help enhance understanding of the earthquake process.
