    • Earthquakes initiation and thermal shear instability in the Hindu Kush intermediate depth nest 

      Poli, Piero; Prieto, German A.; Rivera, Efrain; Ruiz, Sergio
      Intermediate depth earthquakes often occur along subducting lithosphere, but despite their ubiquity the physical mechanism responsible for promoting brittle or brittle?like failure is not well constrained. Large concentrations ...

    • Modification of inertial oscillations by the mesoscale eddy field 

      Elipot, Shane; Lumpkin, Rick; Prieto, German A.
      The modification of near?surface near?inertial oscillations (NIOs) by the geostrophic vorticity is studied globally from an observational standpoint. Surface drifter are used to estimate NIO characteristics. Despite its ...

    • On amplitude information carried by the ambient seismic field 

      Prieto, German A.; Denolle, Marine; Lawrence,Jesse; Beroza,Gregory C.
      The use of the ambient seismic field (ASF) to extract Earth’s response has received significant attention in the last several years. Multiple studies demonstrate the utility of the ASF for estimating high-resolution velocity ...

    • Radiated seismic energy from coda measurements and no scaling in apparent stress with seismic moment 

      Baltay, Annemarie; Prieto, German A.; Beroza, Gregory C.
      The seismic coda consists of scattered waves that leave the earthquake source in a variety of directions. The averaging of source radiation that results leads to stable ground motion spectra that we use as the basis for a ...

    • Variability in earthquake stress drop and apparent stress 

      Baltay, Annemarie; Ide, Satoshi; Prieto, German A.; Beroza, Gregory
      We apply empirical Green's function coda?based analysis to four earthquake sequences in Japan that span a magnitude range of 1.8 to 6.9, to measure radiated energy, corner frequency and stress drop. We find no systematic ...
