Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming EGU 2023 and our broad session on slow earthquakes.

The annual meeting of EGU23 will be held on 23-28 April in Vienna, Austria, and online. The abstract submission deadline is 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET.

We welcome all the slow-earthquake-related research and invite you to contribute an abstract to our session.The link to submit an abstract:

Session Title: Toward a comprehensive understanding of slow earthquakes
Invited speaker: Chris Marone

Slow earthquakes are widely observed in subduction zones, where they episodically release the tectonic strain built-up in the brittle-ductile transition zone. Given their proximity to the seismogenic megathrust, a comprehensive understanding of slow earthquakes may shed light on the stress condition of the megathrust fault. With improved quantities of data and advanced technologies, the nature of slow earthquakes has been intensively investigated in a variety of tectonic environments over the past decades. This session aims to offer a broad space for discussion of the recent advances in slow earthquakes.

We seek studies ranging from lab to volcanic and tectonic scales and from diverse geological and geophysical (including but not limited to seismic and geodetic) observations to imaging and modeling. We welcome abstracts focused on earthquake detection, scaling, source, rupture process, and fluid or/and heterogeneity effects. Within the larger context of this session, we also seek abstracts illuminating the connection between slow and fast earthquakes.
