Dear colleagues, we would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the following session at the 2022 Seismological Society of America (SSA) annual meeting, taking place in Bellevue, Washington on April 19–23 2022. The deadline for submitting is January 12 at 5 pm Pacific.

The recurrence time, ground motion and the spatiotemporal evolution of natural,
anthropogenic-induced and laboratory earthquakes are strongly influenced by processes that involve the frictional and mechanical properties of the fault systems, as well as the regional and local stress field where these events nucleate. Understanding and characterizing static and dynamic earthquake source parameters is crucial for improving hazard assessment and earthquake forecasts. Similarly, understanding the various scaling relationships of these parameters and their interactions between seismic and aseismic slip modes is important for further advancing hazard estimates. This session focuses on highlighting forefront studies that aim to improve understanding of earthquake source processes and its related complexities. From theory and numerical modeling to large-scale observations at different tectonic regimes, we encourage contributions on research that explore earthquake source physics in a broad range of magnitudes and time scales.
