Earthquake series cause uplift variations at continental margins

(GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre) A new mechanism may explain how earthquakes with magnitudes larger than M7 are linked to coastal uplift. This has important implications for the seismic hazard and the tsunami risk along shores of many countries. The mechanism is proposed by a team of scientists led by Vasiliki Mouslopoulou of GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Tectonics.
