Nucleation and arrest of dynamic slip on a pressurized fault
Elevated pore pressure can lead to reactivation of slip on pre-existing fractures and faults when the static Coulomb failure is reached locally. As the pressurized region spreads diffusively, slip can accumulate quasi-statically ...
Seismic and aseismic slip pulses driven by thermal pressurization of pore fluid
There are several lines of evidence that suggest that thermal pressurization (TP) of pore fluid within a low-permeability fault core may play the key role in the development of earthquake slip. To elucidate effects of TP ...
