Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the AGU Fall Meeting session “*Creep
on Faults: Aseismic Slip Throughout the Earthquake Cycle*”, cross-listed
with the Geodesy and Seismology sections.

The submission deadline is *Wednesday, 2 August at 23:59 EDT. *

Please submit abstracts at:

The conveners for this session are:

Kathryn Materna, University of California Berkeley, CA, United States

Eric Lindsey, Earth Observatory of Singapore, Nanyang Technological
University, Singapore

Ruth Harris, USGS, Menlo Park, CA, United States

Session ID: 24898

Session Description:


Aseismic slip is a significant mode of moment release on many faults,
making spatiotemporal variations in creep an important area of research for
understanding fault slip. The many flavors of fault creep include, but are
not limited to: interseismic creep, afterslip, and triggered or spontaneous
slow slip. Observational, experimental, and modeling studies of creeping
fault behavior have recently shed light on the richness of aseismic slip
processes in nature, and have revealed that faults display many
combinations of seismic and aseismic moment release at different phases of
the earthquake cycle. However, much remains to be understood about the
frictional and other physical properties responsible for this behavior, and
to what extent they are stable over time. In this session, we invite all
contributions to the study of fault creep from the interseismic to
postseismic phases of the earthquake cycle, including observational,
laboratory and modeling investigations.

Looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

Kathryn Materna, Eric Lindsey, and Ruth Harris
