Depth segmentation of the seismogenic continental crust: The 2008 and 2009 Qaidam earthquakes

Abstract:

The seismic hazard in the immediate vicinity of an earthquake is usually assumed to be reduced after rupture of a continental fault, with along-strike portions being brought closer to failure and aftershocks being significantly smaller. This period of reduced hazard will persist as strain re-accumulates over decades or centuries. However, this is only realised if the entire seismogenic layer ruptured in the event. Here we use satallite radar measurements to show the ruptures of two Mw
