  • The authors of the study are confident that the results will make it possible to better identify the continental seismogenic sources affecting the Iberian Peninsula.

  • These data will be used to compile and integrate data on fault and sediment input properties from a number of subduction zones with a range of tectonic parameters and seismogenic behaviour.

  • The Mandya-Channapatna-Bangalore lineament (a potential fault-line) is the "seismogenic source" for the city, and an earthquake of magnitude 5 on the Richter Scale was the most intense the region has seen.

  • Migrating tremors illuminate complex deformation beneath the seismogenic San Andreas fault

  • Using borehole geophysical measurements in conjunction with laboratory studies, scientists study heat flow, stress, fluid pressure, and the mechanical behavior of fault-zone materials at seismogenic depths to yield improved models of the earthquake cycle.


  • No coseismic offset in the position of the glacier surface is observed; instead, modest tsunamis associated with the glacial earthquakes implicate glacier calving in the seismogenic process.


  • CHIKYU is the world's first scientific drilling vessel capable of riser-drilling deep beneath the ocean floor and in seismogenic (earthquake-producing) zones that have never been reached before. - latest science and technology news stories

  • The deep San Andreas Fault is moving faster when tremors are more active, presumably stressing the seismogenic zone, loading the fault a little bit faster.

  • At other fault zones, such as at Cascadia, swarms of tremors in the ductile zone deep underground correlate with slip at depth as well as increased stress on the shallower "seismogenic zone," where earthquakes are generated.
