Hongfeng Yang, Yajing Liu and Jian Lin Geometrical effects of a subducted seamount on stopping megathrust ruptures Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 30 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50509

Key Points

  • A seamount can stop ruptures with a reduction in normal stress
  • The reduction in normal stress is dependent on seamount-nucleation distance
  • The reduction in normal stress also depends on seamount height-width ratio
