Dear colleagues,
(sorry for cross-posting)

We would like to draw your attention to the following symposium at
The 27th IUGG General Assembly held at Montreal, Canada, in July.

The deadline for abstract submission is February 18, 2019.

S20 - Earthquake Source Mechanics

Recent high-quality seismic and geodetic observations provide large
volumes of data, which enable accurate determination of earthquake
source parameters, including locations, magnitudes, moment tensors,
and detailed imaging of coseismic rupture processes. Further,
techniques for solving inverse problems have improved substantially
in the recent past. Abundant information from these analyses is the
basis for studying a variety of earthquakes including swarms,
tectonic and volcanic events as well as induced events, and to seek
the governing laws and conditions for rupture initiation, growth and
arrest. It also provides useful input to estimate the stress state,
fault geometry, and fluid movement around seismic regions. The
entire earthquake process from long-term tectonic loading and slow
nucleation to rapid rupture propagation with strong motion radiation
is now studied using numerical simulations. The validity of
assumptions in these simulations is tested by data analysis and
laboratory experiments supported by several drilling projects.
In this symposium, we invite contributions on data analysis and
interpretation of earthquake parameters and source processes, on
improvement and validation of routine analysis techniques, on
theoretical and numerical modeling of dynamic ruptures and
earthquake sequences, and observational and experimental studies on
the physics of earthquakes. In addition, studies of significant
earthquakes including recent events such as the 2016 Kumamoto, Japan
(Mw 7.0), Central Italy (Mw 6.2), and 2017 Mexico (Mw 8.1 & 7.1)
earthquakes are welcome.

Conveners: Satoshi Ide, Naofumi Aso, Simone Cesca, Daniela Kühn,
            Yajing Liu, Seok Goo Song
