*T011 - Multiscale Crustal Deformation in Subduction Zones and the
Megathrust Earthquake Cycle: Progress from Observations and Models*
The timescales of deformation in subduction zones span seconds to millions
of years. Associated with these timescales is a spectrum of deformation
behavior, from elastic to permanent brittle or ductile. The patterns of
slip on the plate boundary throughout the megathrust earthquake cycle and
the rheology of crust and mantle are central to this deformation. There is
also a complex relationship between short- and long-term deformation
processes. Observations from modern seismology, geodesy, paleogeodesy,
geophysics, and geology along with advances in modeling capabilities are
revealing the details of these processes. As a result, there is much new
understanding of the crustal deformation at subduction margins across time
and space in association with megathrust coupling/slip and subduction zone
rheology along with other tectonic and non-tectonic processes. We welcome
submissions on all aspects of crustal deformation to explore the geodynamic
processes governing earthquake cycles and the long-term evolution of the
subduction margins.
