Fumiko Tajima and Brian L. N. Kennett Interlocking of heterogeneous plate coupling and aftershock area expansion pattern for the 2011 Tohoku-Oki Mw9 earthquake Geophysical Research Letters 39

Version of Record online: 6 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL050703

Key Points

  • We revised the concept of asperity model in terms of effective plate coupling
  • We showed an anomalous zone in plate coupling by a joint tomography model
  • Our approach may detect clues for future interlocked megathrust events
