  • Earthquake scaling relations for mid-ocean ridge transform faults 

    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 ...
  • Scaling relations for seismic cycles on mid-ocean ridge transform faults 

    Boettcher, Margaret S.; McGuire, Jeffrey J. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11-04)
    Mid-ocean ridge transform faults (RTFs) have thermal structures that vary systematically with tectonic parameters, resulting in predictable seismic characteristics and clear seismic cycles. We develop a scaling relation ...
