Dear colleagues, 

We would like to invite you to consider submitting an abstract to our AGU 2020 session.
Abstract submission deadline is 29 July, 2020 (11:59PM, ET)

S016 - Modeling and imaging complex earthquake ruptures
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm20/prelim.cgi/Session/103131
Our collective understanding of earthquake source processes has been improved through modeling efforts across multiple temporal and spatial scales, investigations of diverse datasets, understanding of potential modeling uncertainties and biases, and comparative validations of numerical models and laboratory experiments. Numerical modeling and imaging of the co-seismic rupture and the related pre- or post-seismic phenomena play a key role in illuminating earthquake source physics and regional tectonics, and assessing seismic and tsunami hazards.
This session welcomes contributions related to kinematic and dynamic earthquake rupture that resolve recent significant events and/or advance current theories or methods. We welcome studies investigating individual earthquakes or sequences, and rupture complexities due to fault geometry, roughness, fluids and crustal heterogeneity. We solicit contributions exploring the impact of modeling uncertainties and resolution limitations on interpretations of earthquake rupture processes, as well as how to synergize results from numerical models, laboratory experiments, and seismic and geodetic observations.

Invited presenters:
Alan Juarez (University of Southern California)
Valère Lambert (California Institute of Technology)

Conveners:
Théa Ragon (California Institute of Technology)
Ryo Okuwaki (University of Tsukuba)
Wenyuan Fan (University of California, San Diego)
Dara Goldberg (U.S. Geological Survey)
