Coupling Fraction

November 4, 2012

Interseismic coupling distribution based on GEONET GPS data from 1996-2000 and estimated using a three-dimensional block model of the combined offshore/onshore fault network (Loveless and Meade, JGR, 2010) . Coupling is estimated on a mesh of triangular dislocation elements based on the three-dimensional slab geometry of Furuse and Kono (2003). Overlain on the coupling contours […]
