Geosciences, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, The devastating effects caused by the recent catastrophic earthquakes that took place all over the world—from Japan, New Zealand, to Chile, as well as those occurring in the Mediterranean basin—have once again shown that the ground motion, although a serious source of direct damage, is not the only parameter.

Experimental verification of these results may be obtained from recent rock-on-rock friction experiments with gouge layers, deformed at normal stress values of 1–50 Mpa (Biegel et al., ; Anthony and Marone, ; Knuth and Marone, ).But, due to the strain rates needed to replicate co-seismic rupture velocities, and the difficulty in imaging deformed unconsolidated sediment, it will Cited by: 9.

The ideal input data for a SLAM analysis are the hypocenter location with associated uncertainties, the corresponding focal mechanism with uncertainties, and a DEM of the epicentral area that is of sufficient resolution to capture significant geomorphic features related to fault displacement of the ground surface.
