Role of asperities on the transition from seismic to aseismic slip using an experimental fault slip system

Weiwei Shu , Olivier Lengliné & Jean Schmittbuhl
Faults are common geological structures distributed at various depths within the Earth with different behaviors: from seismic to aseismic. The frictional stability of faults is linked to the properties of asperities that make the contact between fault surfaces. Investigating the interaction between asperities and their link with the frictional stability of faults aims at a better understanding of the intrinsic relationships between the observations of earthquake swarms and the slow local aseismic transient. Here we...
