Please consider submitting an abstract to our AGU session, “Plate Motion, Continental Deformation, and Interseismic Strain Accumulation.” The AGU abstract deadline is creeping up on us: August 3rd.


Plate Motion, Continental Deformation, and Interseismic Strain Accumulation

Session ID#: 12404
Session Description:
Space geodetic positioning data (particularly GNSS and InSAR) are commonly used to evaluate how plate motion is being taken up by continental deformation and the mechanisms of elastic strain cycles. Such studies often integrate geodetic solutions with geological and geophysical data in computational models. We are inviting studies that utilize geodetic and geologic/geophysical observations to investigate the character of intra-plate and plate boundary deformation zones, interseismic strain accumulation and co- and post-seismic strain release.  We seek studies that help to answer many related questions like (but not limited to): What fraction of plate motion is taken up by fault slip during earthquakes and through creep processes? And what fraction becomes part of distributed deformation off of the major faults?  How representative are the present-day angular velocities of the geologic plate tectonic motions?  To what degree do postseismic transients perturb the nearly constant velocity of the plates?
