1 Ilya Zaliapin Department of Mathematics and Statistics University of Nevada, Reno SAMSI workshop Dynamics of Seismicity Thursday, October 10, 2013 Yehuda Ben-Zion Department of Earth Sciences University of Southern California Spatio-temporal evolution of seismic clusters in southern and central California

2 Earthquake clusters: existence, detection, stability Clusters in southern California Outline o Main types of clusters o Topological cluster characterization Evolution of clustering with relation to large events 44 Cluster type vs. physical properties of the lithosphere

8 Separation of clustered and background parts in southern California Background = weak links (as in stationary, inhomogeneous Poisson process) Clustered part = strong links (events are much closer to each other than in the background part) Zaliapin and Ben-Zion, JGR (2013) Zaliapin et al., PRL (2008)

13 ETAS declustering: Example 29,671 events 9,536 mainshocks

14 Burst-like clusters Represent brittle fracture. Large b-value (b=1), small number of events, small proportion of foreshocks, short duration, small area, isotropic spatial distribution. Tend to occur in regions with low heat flow, non-enhanced fluid content, relatively large depth => increased effective viscosity. Swarm-like clusters Represent brittle-ductile fracture. Small b-value (b=0.6), large number of events, large proportion of foreshocks, long duration, large area, anisotropic channel-like spatial pattern. Tend to occur in regions with high heat flow, increased fluid content, relatively shallow depth => decreased effective viscosity. Singles Highly numerous in all regions; some but not all are related to catalog resolution. Clusters of the largest events Most prominent clusters; object of the standard cluster studies. Not representative of the majority of clusters (mixture of types 1-2).
