Fault-Zone Properties and Earthquake Rupture Dynamics : Volume 94 Hardback
Edited by Eiichi (National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention, Tsukuba, Ib Fukuyama
Part of the International Geophysics series
The dynamics of the earthquake rupture process are closely related to fault zone properties which the authors have intensively investigated by various observations in the field as well as by laboratory experiments.
These include geological investigation of the active and fossil faults, physical and chemical features obtained by the laboratory experiments, as well as the seismological estimation from seismic waveforms.
Earthquake dynamic rupture can now be modeled using numerical simulations on the basis of field and laboratory observations, which should be very useful for understanding earthquake rupture dynamics.
