Version of Record online: 6 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL058109

Key Points

  • Evidence for thermal shear runaway mechanism for intermediate-depth earthquakes
  • Stress drop scaling and low radiation efficiencies observed for Mw 3.5–5.2
  • Fracture energies larger than for shallow earthquakes with similar slip
