The Geological Society of London has released Special Publication No. 359, Geology of the Earthquake Source: A Volume in Honour of Rick Sibson professor emeritus in the Department of Geology at New Zealand’s University of Otago. This collection of Sibson’s papers, edited by Åke Fagereng, Virginia G. Toy, and Julie Rowland, examines the geological record of earthquake faulting. Observations in active fault zones combine with information from exhumed ancient faults and theoretical studies to illustrate relationships between fault rocks and slip styles, particularly considering the effects of fluids and fault reactivation.
