The geodesy and geology of earthquakes and aseismic slip

Abstract:

In this thesis, I explore the geodetic and geologic evidence of earthquake ruptures and aseismic fault deformation in different settings in order to understand: 1) the distribution of seismic or aseismic slip, and 2) the physical factors that influence the mechanics of faulting. In a case study of the Tien Shan (Central Asia), mapping and paleoseismology of faults along a supposed 400-km signal of fault creep paints a more nuanced picture than existing regional studies. With data from th...
