Preparation of Subduction Earthquakes: Slow, Deep, Large-scale trigger

Project description

Understanding the most deadly seismic processes

Subduction zones are plate tectonic boundaries where two plates converge, with one plate thrust beneath the other. This is where the most destructive geohazards occur as this phenomenon causes the most devastating megathrust earthquakes and tsunamis on the planet. However, the specific role of the subducting slab in triggering those processes remains unexplored. The EU-funded DEEP-trigger project aims to study the mechanisms of aseismic slab deformation in triggering earthquakes, and will explore potential precursors of various depth, duration and amplitude. In situ observations will be conducted in southern Peru and central Chile. The researchers will use machine learning to systematise existing rich geophysical data from South America, Japan and Sumatra to unveil hidden connections between seismic processes in most endangered zones.
