Are creep events big? Estimations of along-strike rupture lengths

Abstract:

Segments of many faults are observed to slip aseismically at the surface. On the central segment of the San Andreas Fault, aseismic slip accumulates largely in creep events: few mm bursts of slip which occur every few weeks to months. But even though we have observed creep events worldwide since the 1960s, we still do not know how big most events are or which forces drive them. To address this uncertainty, we systematically identify creep events along the central San Andreas Fault and determi...
