B. Ferdowsi, M. Griffa, R. A. Guyer, P. A. Johnson, C. Marone and J. Carmeliet Microslips as precursors of large slip events in the stick-slip dynamics of sheared granular layers: A discrete element model analysis Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 19 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50813

Key Points

  • Microslip event rate is proposed as a measure of activity in granular layer
  • Microslip event rate correlates well with large slip events
  • Microslips emergence is controlled by the value of the slipping contact ratio
