On behalf of the session conveners, I would like to invite you to submit 
an abstract to
*SE30 A Spectrum of Fault Slip Along Subduction Zones: From Megathrust 
Earthquakes To Aseismic Transient Slip*
at the 2016 AOGS annual meeting that will be held in Beijing, July 31 to 
August 5 (http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2016/public.asp?page=home.htm). *
The deadline of abstract submission is February 19.

Session description: *
In the 21st century, there appears to be a global surge of great 
earthquakes: 19 Mw>8 earthquakes have been reported since 2004. On the 
other hand, slow sip events (SSEs) and non-volcanic tremors have been 
discovered in a variety of tectonic settings, including a number of 
subduction zones such as Nankai, Cascadia, Central America, New Zealand 
and Alaska. Reducing losses from megathrust earthquakes and sometimes 
accompanied tsunami demands a better understanding of the full spectrum 
of fault slip along subduction zones. In this session, we solicit 
contributions on studies of subduction zone process from earthquake 
seismology, geodesy, numerical modeling, and laboratory experiment. 
Topics include, but are not limited to, rupture process and cycles of 
megathrust earthquake, subduction zone structure, frictional properties 
of the subduction fault interface, effect of fluid in seismic behavior, 
mechanism of SSEs/tremors, and relationship between megathrust rupture 
and SSEs/tremors.
