The Ecuador-Colombia subduction zone has been affected over the last century by a remarkable sequence of large earthquakes. This earthquake supercycle started with the great 1906 Mw 8.5-8.8 earthquake, which ruptured a 500-km-long segment of the subduction megathrust from northern Ecuador to Colombia. A sequence of three large earthquakes with Mw from 7.7 to 8.2 re-broke several sub-segments of the same area in 1942, 1958 and finally in 1979, cascading progressively from south to north along th… [more]
