Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session co-organized
by the Tectonophysics, Seismology and Geodesy sections at the upcoming 2018
AGU Fall meeting:

*T025: Interplay between seismic and aseismic slip: Implications for fault
physics*
Session ID#: 43301

*Invited speakers: *
Carl Tape, University of Alaska Fairbanks
André Niemeijer,  Universiteit Utrecht

*Session Description:*
Faults at tectonic boundaries accommodate plate motion through an array of
seismic and aseismic modes of deformation. Even within these categories,
there are important differences among event slip characteristics. For
example, earthquakes exhibit variations in their frequency content and
tsunamigenic potential. Aseismic slip transients are often, but not always,
accompanied by tectonic tremor, and there remains much to be understood
about the relationship between aseismic transients and earthquake
nucleation. We invite contributions from observational, experimental,
geological and theoretical studies that explore the variations in and
interplay among seismic and aseismic slip phenomena in various tectonic
settings, including the following questions: (1) Are different slip
behaviors well separated in space, or can the same fault areas experience
different failure modes? (2) Is there a systematic spatial or temporal
relation between different slip types? (3) What are the physical mechanisms
that govern this complex behavior?

*Conveners:*
Valère Lambert,       California Institute of Technology
Kathryn Materna,     University of California Berkeley
Tomoaki Nishikawa, Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University
Yohei Hamada,        Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology

As a reminder, the abstract submission deadline is *Wednesday, August 1st
at 23:59 EDT*.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington D.C.!
Valère Lambert
