Dear all,

I would like to draw your attention to our session of the coming AGU Fall Meeting entitled "Earthquake Source Properties Inferred from Macroscopic Earthquake Source Parameters and Seismicity Parameters."
We focus on earthquake source parameter studies, such as stress drops, radiated energy, moment rate functions (source time functions), moment tensor, magnitude, etc., in addition to seismicity parameter studies, such as b-values of the Gutenberg-Richter's law and ETAS parameters, and their implications to, for example, earthquake physics and strong-motion assessment.
We welcome studies of both natural and laboratory earthquakes.
Please check the session description below and consider submitting your abstract to this session.

See you in New Orleans!

Best Regards,
Taka


[Session Description]
S026: Earthquake Source Properties Inferred from Macroscopic Earthquake Source Parameters and Seismicity Parameters

Session ID#: 27151
Session Description:
Macroscopic earthquake source parameters (e.g. stress drop, radiated energy, moment tensor, and magnitude) inferred from seismic data reflect the physics of the fault rupture process and fault properties such as stress on the fault and fault strength. Therefore source parameters are useful to understand rupture processes and fault properties and hence, to assess earthquake hazard. Moreover, statistical analyses of seismicity (e.g. b-value of the Gutenberg-Richter relation) are showing their potential as an indicator of fault properties. To further promote this research, we need both accurate estimates of the source and the seismicity parameters and appropriate interpretations. This session aims to gather and integrate earthquake source parameter and seismicity studies to improve our knowledge of, for example, earthquake rupture dynamics, fault properties, tectonics, and seismic hazard assessment. We welcome theoretical, numerical, observational, and experimental contributions to improve the estimation and interpretation of source parameters and seismicity parameters.
