Kaj M. Johnson, Jun'ichi Fukuda and Paul Segall Challenging the rate-state asperity model: Afterslip following the 2011 M9 Tohoku-oki, Japan, earthquake Geophysical Research Letters 39

Version of Record online: 17 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GL052901

Key Points

  • Postseismic deformation is inconsistent with the rate-state asperity model
  • Afterslip occurred on asperities or stress accumulated between asperities
  • The simple asperity model for subduction zone coupling needs modification
