  • Boettcher, Margaret S.; Jordan, T. H. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-12-09)
    A mid-ocean ridge transform fault (RTF) of length L, slip rate V, and moment release rate dot above M can be characterized by a seismic coupling coefficient χ = A E/A T, where A E ∼ dot above M/V is an effective seismic ...
  • Boettcher, Margaret S.; Marone, C. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-11)
    A central problem in studies of fault interaction and earthquake triggering is that of quantifying changes in frictional strength and the constitutive response caused by dynamic stressing. We imposed normal stress vibrations ...
  • Chaytor, Jason D.; ten Brink, Uri S. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-07-15)
    As shown by the recent Mw 7.0 Haiti earthquake, intra-arc deformation, which accompanies the subduction process, can present seismic and tsunami hazards to nearby islands. Spatially-limited diffuse tectonic deformation ...
  • Nedimovic, Mladen R.; Bohnenstiehl, DelWayne R.; Carbotte, Suzanne M.; Canales, J. Pablo; Dziak, Robert P. (2009-04-03)
    Multichannel seismic observations provide the first direct images of crustal scale normal faults within the Juan de Fuca plate system and indicate that brittle deformation extends up to ~200 km seaward of the Cascadia ...
  • Garcia, Michael O.; Caplan-Auerbach, Jackie; De Carlo, Eric H.; Kurz, Mark D.; Becker, N. (2005-09-20)
    A half century of investigations are summarized here on the youngest Hawaiian volcano, Lō`ihi Seamount. It was discovered in 1952 following an earthquake swarm. Surveying in 1954 determined it has an elongate shape, which ...
  • Boettcher, Margaret S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)
    The relatively simple tectonic environment of mid-ocean ridge transform fault (RTF) seismicity provides a unique opportunity for investigation of earthquake and faulting processes. We develop a scaling model that is ...
