Title: Detection of aseismic slip on the active fault Slip on a plate boundary can be seismic or aseismic, complementing each other in time and space to accommodate the long-term plate motions. They result in different seismic behaviors that have varying rupture durations. In the seismogenic zone, ordinary earthquakes experience rapid slip on a fault with a few ~ tens of second durations. While below the seismogenic zone, slow rupture propagation and/or low slip rate can be also taking place with a wide range of duration from minutes to days, called slow slip events /aseismic creep. This project aims at bringing seismological constrain on the location and timing of slow slip episodes in active faults.
