Synchronization of small-scale seismic clusters reveals large-scale plate deformation

Hayrullah Karabulut, Michel Bouchon & Jean Schmittbuhl
Abstract It has long been observed that periods of intense seismic activity in a region alternate with periods of relative quiescence, but establishing whether or not this intermittency is driven by broad-scale physical processes occurring in the Earth, remains a challenge. Here, we address this question of long-range triggering by a large-scale analysis of evolution of the seismicity between 2003 and 2017 in the Anatolia region. Two multi-year periods of synchronous high seismicity rate in...
