Information - TS3.2 Seismogenic coupling zones - state and processes
Subduction zones are the locus of lifely geodynamic activity, encompassing a large variety of phenomena studied in different structural levels.
In this session, we want to focus on seismogenic coupling zone processes, where the largest part of (mega-thrust) earthquake energy is released, thereby showing the necessity to better understand the processes active there. Introducing all kinds of direct and indirect evidence is required, e.g. geophysical and geological observations, deduced or related parameters evaluated also by modelling, discussion of surface indicators and structural evidence, in order to identify key features and develop ideas about the interaction of processes taking place in those complex process zones.
We would like to invite contributions from a broad spectrum of disciplines and all structural levels between surface and depth, discussing the state and processes observed in seismogenic coupling zones worldwide.
