Hiroyuki Noda, Masao Nakatani and Takane Hori Large nucleation before large earthquakes is sometimes skipped due to cascade-up—Implications from a rate and state simulation of faults with hierarchical asperities Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth 118

Version of Record online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrb.50211

Key Points

  • A hierarchical asperity model has been realized in a rate-state framework.
  • Large earthquakes are generated by cascade-up only sometimes.
  • Cascade-up requires preparation accompanied by elevated preseismic creep rate.
