A new conceptual model predicts key characteristics of major earthquakes and tsunamis

Understanding how earthquakes occur is one of the main open questions in the field of seismology. Decades of research have not been enough to establish a model to predict earthquake’s behaviour neither to explain the systematic variation of the properties of their seismic rupture observed according to the depth where they initiate. This situation has … Read more A new conceptual model predicts key characteristics of major earthquakes and tsunamis
