<< Why many major strike-slip faults known to have had large earthquakes are silent in the interseismic period is a long-standing enigma. One would expect small earthquakes to occur at least at the bottom of the seismogenic zone, where deeper aseismic deformation concentrates loading. [AA] suggest that the absence of such concentrated microseismicity indicates deep rupture past the seismogenic zone in previous large earthquakes >>
