... this reflects persistent earthquake-generating fault patches surrounded by creep, or the presence of creep and earthquakes at different times along the same patch. We use new, autonomous underwater vehicle high-resolution seafloor mapping to image the morphology of and offsets along transform fault segments...

..., the elastic properties of the rock and the inelastic deformation processes, such as creep, grain sliding and pressure solution, all exert a control on the fracture growth rates, and that more isotropic fracture networks will tend to develop if the vertical effective stress is low or if the fractures...

.... The exception is known as creep, or aseismic slip, and is discussed below. Large earthquakes are more efficient at releasing the accumulating slip deficit because their large rupture areas ( c. 100 × 50 km) permit large amounts of slip (≥5 m). Thirty M w = 6 earthquakes must occur to match the energy released...

..., such as monitoring of ground settlements caused by structures, dam integrity and displacements of creeping landslides. In contrast to conventional methods, such as extensometer, geodetical or radar measurements, the distributed sensors offer gapless monitoring over the entire depth of the borehole. The paper offers...

... variations in the subducted protoliths and that take the form of brittle pods and lenses within a viscous matrix. Microstructural observations indicate that the matrix lithologies (blueschists and quartz-rich metasediments) deformed by distributed power-law viscous flow accommodated by dislocation creep...

These trends suggest that the establishment of life in a landscape substantially accelerates soil creep, whereas differences in biological communities among sites with abundant moisture have a relatively small effect on creep. *Current address: Redwood Sciences Laboratory, U.S...

... edges of the Durmid structure, perhaps due to the same kind of slow shallow creep that has been documented along the main strand of the San Andreas fault zone. Steep right and right-oblique faults and folds are the main structures in Pleistocene sediments deformed by the ∼1-km-wide East Shoreline fault...

... of blueschists and eclogites that record prograde deformation, with peak metamorphism of 1200–1600 MPa and 450–550 °C. Field observations reveal that coexistence of blueschist and eclogite sets up an important rheological contrast: blueschists show distributed viscous dislocation creep, whereas eclogites...

...Chengwu Li; Qifei Wang; Dihao Ai; Lihui Dong; Feiyin Wang ABSTRACT A quasi-static uniaxial compression experiment was designed to simulate creep damage in coal. During the experiment, electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and acoustic emission (AE) signals were synchronously acquired. The energy of EMR...

It consists of three E-W–oriented fault sectors that are seismically active and characterized by earthquakes up to 4.7 in magnitude (M) capable of producing ground rupture and damage located mainly along the western and central sectors, and by continuous creep on the eastern sector.

The static transmissibility also decreases over time, which may be a result of creep deformation or the blocking of pore channels with gouge material. Our results indicate that once the gouge material is developed...
