Fault Behavior and the Earthquake Generation Process

Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth

This special section is a direct outgrowth of an AGU Chapman Conference on Fault Behavior and the Earthquake Generation Process that was convened in Snowbird, Utah, from October 11 to 15, 1982. The body of information concerning the behavior of faults in space and time, especially with regard to earthquake recurrence, fault zone geometry, and the mechanical and physical properties of fault zones that control rupture processes has been increasing at an enormous rate.
