Version of Record online: 27 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL058886

Key Points

  • Simulated spontaneous outer rise and wedge events agree geometrically with nature
  • Stress transfer and dynamic Coulomb wedge theory explain their occurrence
  • They increase megathrust event recurrence and complexity, and tsunami hazard
