Article first published online: 24 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20076

Key Points

  • Observation of acoustic-fluidization for fault gouge under seismogenic stresses
  • We induce dynamic weakening of the fault gouge using excitation by stress waves
  • Our data could explain aspects of earthquake triggering by dynamic stressing
