Abstract

Previous work of Rudnicki and Kanamori, which used collinear crack solutions to examine quantitatively the effects of fault slip zone interaction on moment, stress drop, and strain energy release, is extended by considering the effects of interaction between different size slip zones. The calculations demonstrate that the presence of a large pre-existing slip zone can substantially amplify the low frequency seismic signal due to slip on a nearby smaller slip zone.-from Authors Dept.
