Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to our AGU 2019 Fall Meeting session, T044 – Segmentation and Supercycles: Observations and Models of Earthquake Recurrence Patterns.

We welcome submissions of either observations or models of earthquake rupture recurrence in all types of tectonic environments.

The session description is as follows:

Earthquake rupture segmentation and cyclicity can be complex; nevertheless, recognizable patterns in earthquake recurrence emerge from long, high resolution, spatially distributed chronologies.  Researchers now seek to discover the range of possible rupture areas, the variability of recurrence intervals, and patterns of earthquake clustering in space and time.  The term “supercycle” has been used to describe repeating longer periods of strain accumulation and release that each involve multiple fault ruptures.  However, this term has become very broadly applied, lumping together several distinct phenomena that have different implications for seismic hazard and fault mechanics.  We welcome submissions regarding observations or models of any type of earthquake cyclicity but encourage authors to describe the behavior more specifically.  We likewise invite submissions regarding rupture segmentation, i.e., limits placed on earthquake rupture areas by persistent, frequent, or ephemeral barriers, including connections between barrier behavior and underlying causes such as geologic structure or fault rheology.

Invited speakers:
Tom Rockwell, San Diego State University
Daniel Melnick, Universidad Austral de Chile

Conveners:
Belle Philibosian, US Geological Survey
Aron Meltzner, Earth Observatory of Singapore / Nanyang Technological University

The abstract deadline is July 31, 2019 at 23:59 EDT.  You may submit an abstract to this session using the following URL: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/76621
