Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to session “ Exploring Rupture
Dynamics and Seismic Wave Propagation along Complex Fault Systems" at the
SSA Seismology of the Americas Meeting, taking place 14–17 May, 2018, in
Miami, Florida. As reminder the abstracts are due today, Wednesday January
24th at 5 p.m PST.


Exploring Rupture Dynamics and Seismic Wave Propagation along Complex Fault
Systems

Investigations related to how complexities in fault parameters could
potentially impact the behavior of earthquake rupture and affect seismic
hazard are areas of active and challenging research. This session will
highlight recent advances in rupture dynamics on complex fault systems. We
are open to a wide range of studies related to numerical, experimental and
observational fault rupture dynamic studies with heterogeneities such as
fault geometry, fault roughness, frictional parameters, creeping
mechanisms, stress asperities, off-fault material properties, bi-material
interfaces and wedge structures along subduction zones. We also encourage
contributions on research that explores links between earthquake source
physics, tsunami generation/propagation and ground motion variability.
