Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to our AGU 2019 session (deadline for submission July 31!)

S031 - Resolving the Complexity of Earthquake Processes
Our collective understanding of earthquake processes has seen great progress through combined modeling efforts across multiple temporal and spatial scales, the inclusion of diverse datasets, and the comparison of modeling results with numerical and laboratory experiments. However, our interpretations of earthquake source processes remain limited due to the remote nature of observations, our incomplete knowledge of the Earth's interior, and potential modeling uncertainties or biases imposed by our prior assumptions.
This session invites contributions aimed at studying earthquake processes through both kinematic source imaging and numerical modeling approaches. We welcome studies focused on the spatio-temporal complexity of on-fault processes and the relative impact of fault geometry, roughness, fluids and bulk heterogeneity, within the context of individual ruptures as well as earthquake sequences. We solicit contributions exploring the implications of modeling uncertainties and resolution limitations in our interpretation of earthquake rupture complexity, within the scope of numerical, laboratory and observational studies.
