Spatial relation between main earthquake slip and its aftershock distribution

Abstract:

We examine where aftershocks occur relative to the spatial distribution of the main shock slip using data from several recent large earthquakes. No universal relation between high- and low-moment regions and high or low aftershock occurrence, or vice versa, is found. We generally find that few, and usually the smaller, aftershocks occur in the high-slip regions of the fault, a notable exception to this being the great 1996 Biak, Indonesia, subduction zone earthquake. In all cases, aftershocks...
