Mexican Geophysical Union Annual Meeting

Special Session SE13

Title: 2017 Mw 8.2 Tehuantepec Earthquake
Description: The 2017 Mw 8.2 Tehuantepec earthquake was one of the largest
deep normal earthquakes ever recorded. Nonetheless it caused a tsunami and
the largest number of aftershocks ever recorded in a Mexican earthquake.
Plus there was the Mw 7.1 Puebla earthquake 11 days later (UTC), which it
is still unclear if there was some interaction between the two. Shortly
after the Tehuantepec earthquake, the University of Texas at El Paso
together with the Universidad Autónoma de la Ciudad de Juarez and the
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México installed temporary broadband and
short period networks to record aftershocks and develop local crustal
models. This session will explore that data set. We also invite submissions
studying this unusual earthquake beyond this unique data set. This includes
studies of the resulting tsunami and any interactions with slow slip events
in addition to the event itself.
