Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our session “Exploring Rupture Dynamics and Seismic Wave Propagation Along Complex Fault Systems” at the 2021 virtual Annual Meeting of the Seismological Society of America (19-23 April).

The deadline for abstract submission is January 13th, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. PST

Session description
Investigations related to how complexities in fault parameters and geometry 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, topography, 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.
