Slow and fast earthquakes - from plate boundary faults to hydraulic fractures

By Yajing Liu (Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, McGill University)

Earthquakes pose one of the greatest geological hazards for society, yet it remains challenging to understand the mechanisms that control their timing and magnitude. In this talk, I will discuss the spectrum of slow to fast fault deformation, through the integration of field observation and numerical simulation to understand the source processes of earthquakes of natural and anthropogenic origins.
