Widespread observations of tremor and slow slip in different tectonic environments (Rubinstein et al., 2009; Schwartz and Rokosky, 2007) reveal that these newly recognized processes play fundamental roles in accommodating and marking fault motion. Understanding the relationship between fault dynamics, stable (slow) slip, and more rapid earthquake rupture, however, requires a reliable method of identifying and characterizing slow‐slip phenomena. These tasks are particularly challenging in offshore environments where the investigation of plate boundary processes, especially within subduction‐zone megathrusts, typically relies, at least in part, on ocean bottom seismometers (OBSs). OBS deployments are increasingly common and have...
