Dear friends of slow fault slip,

Please consider submitting your AGU abstract to our session

*T018 - New insights into the nature and effects of slow slip*


Understanding the nature of slow slip is crucial for the evaluation of 
stress accumulation on hazardous faults. Thanks to modern geophysical 
techniques that enable detailed exploration of slow slip behavior in 
space and time, there has been significantly improved knowledge on 
where, how, and why faults slip slowly across scales. We look forward to 
seeing (1) new observations that provide constraints on the 
spatiotemporal distribution of slow slip at depth, (2) investigations on 
the factors controlling the magnitude, recurrence, timing of slow slip 
events and the interplay between seismic and aseismic slip events. We 
especially encourage presentations that demonstrate the value of 
interdisciplinary approaches and the integration of diverse datasets.


Invited Speakers:

Luca Dal Zilio, Caltech

Mathilde Radiguet, ISTerre, Grenoble, France

This session echoes a special issue of JGR on fault creep that is open 
for submission until March 2021 and aims to attract multi-disciplinary 
contributions from geological, geophysical, experimental, and modeling 
studies of slow slip.
