[S-SS15] Fault Rheology and Earthquake Physics

convener:Keisuke Yoshida(Tohoku University), Keishi Okazaki(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Shunya Kaneki(Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University), Hiroyuki Noda(Kyoto University, Disaster Prevention Research Institute)

The goal of this session is to integrate theoretical, experimental, observational, and numerical perspectives from various fields such as seismology, geodesy, geology, mineralogy, and so on, to define what is known about earthquake source processes and the physical and chemical elementary processes of faulting. This session welcomes studies that address such issues as pre-, co-, and post-seismic processes, the rheology of seismogenic faults and fault rocks, laboratory experiments on elementary processes, numerical models based on frictional laws, and estimates of the stress field in the seismogenic zones. We also welcome studies on fault-zone drilling projects and in situ stress measurements.
