...) that occurred from 2012 to 2013 in the Gulf of Maine (GM) along the Atlantic Passive Margin (APM) shelf break, a region with few previously recorded earthquakes. Relative locations were calculated for the earthquakes of the GM swarm and a moment tensor inversion method was used to calculate focal mechanisms...

The slowing, or even stopping, of this deep-ocean circulation would lead to a dramatic reduction in winter temperatures and rainfall levels in western Europe ( ACIA 2004 ). However, as with other modelling scenarios, reconstructing...
